Set up to support the poorest families in the El Viejo region of Nicaragua. Currently a major project for the charity is working with the council in El Viejo, local teachers and a local employee of the charity to provide schoolbags and school materials for 200 selected children of primary age so they can go to school. Without this support, the families could not afford for the child to be at school.

Please see our web-site for more information.

Volunteers wanted - Spanish speakers able and willing to translate our correspondence with our link representative in Nicaragua. We have to pay for this service, much appreciated but costly to us as a small organisation.

We support 200 children to go to school, to learn to read and write, an essential start for their future. A Guardian article in 2015 highlighted how much this is needed:

Our admin costs are very small, but our expenditure is outstripping our income so every penny counts!

Thanking you in anticipation of donations to our cause......
