Primary School Education for 8200 Nicaraguan Youth



This project will provide educational enrichment, a daily lunch, and educational enrichment activities to 8,200 children and youth in Fabretto's early and primary educational programs. Fabretto's mission is to empower underserved children and their families in Nicaragua to reach their full potential, improve their livelihoods, and take advantage of economic opportunity through education and nutrition.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Nicaragua is considered the 2nd poorest country in the Western Hemisphere with one of the lowest levels of education investment per student in Central America. Without the economic opportunities that education affords, the population is trapped in cycles of chronic poverty, where children often abandon education to work in order to help support their families.

How will this project solve this problem?

Most rural school days are only 4 hours. Fabretto provides children with educational enrichment beyond the 4-hour school day, as well as a daily substantive meal. In communities that report high levels of malnutrition, the Fabretto school lunch program is generally the most nutritious meal these children receive. The enrichment activities include computer classes, English classes, sports, arts, music, school gardening, and tutuoring in mathematics and language arts.

Potential Long Term Impact

This program provides 8,200 children and youth with educational enrichment and nutrition in preschool and primary school. This Fabretto school lunch program also incentivizes parents to continue with the children's schooling, rather than having them work in fields to help feed the family. As a result of academic success and nutrition, students develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to pursue greater opportunities to pull themselves, their families, and their communities out of poverty.
