First of all, thanks to everyone who participated by donating to this project! As you all know, we met the Global Giving challenge last April and were able to set up a scholarship program for our town school in San Juan del Sur.
When we were there in August, we set up the program with the help of our agent, Veronica Castro. The program will be for students who show academic promise and a keen interest in learning, but whose families are unable to provide them with the materials/supplies needed to stay in school. The schools included in the project are San Francisco de Asis, Ojochal and Miravalle. The program will look like this:
For one student in each of grades 3, 4, and 5, a $50 scholarship for school supplies.
For one student in grade 6, a scholarship of $150 to enable them to continue on to high school.
This project has been fully funded and will begin at the end of this calendar year, which is also the end of the school year in Nicaragua. Thanks again, everyone!

Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
