More casualties of the political unrest in Nicaragua - high school students

News from our agent: 

Right now, there is a great need for scholarships for people from the communities who wish to continue their education. Because of the current high unemployment, many families will be unable to pay for their children to continue past grade 6. She gives an example of a young woman from La Libertad who, in order to continue in high school (Saturday classes), she has to leave at 3:00 am to walk to Escamequita to take a 6:00 am bus to SJDS.

Dear Supporters- it is with with regret, but also satisfaction about our achievements that we have decided that it time to close the Nicaragua Children’s Foundation.

Political instability in Nicaragua has made it increasingly difficult to deliver programs and services on the ground. We have managed to do so on a reduced scale for the last few years but the situation has worsened and continued meaningful operations is no longer an option.

We would like to express our deep appreciation to the many friends, supporters, volunteers and contributors
who have worked closely with us over the years.  None of this would have been possible without you.

Finally a huge gracias to our dear friend and and Nicaragua agent Veronica and to all of our friends and supporters in Nicaragua. We have learned so much from you all.
