Support our school for the disabled in Nicaragua

Feb 19, 2013

Final report

Los Pipitos continues to grow and to gain the interest of other people and organizations. In the past year, there has been a steady increase in the number of volunteers as well. We have a long-term volunteer who is teaching some of the students to read and write. We also have a speech therapist coming in March 2013. Some of the older students have begun to make money for the school through the creation and sale of pinatas. Many of the students participated this year in a Paralympics event held in San Juan del Sur. The school also has a Board of Directors who are all very concerned with the well-being of the students. 

We have also gained a number of new students, who were previously not attending school at all. These students have benefited enormously just by being somewhere with new people every day. 

All in all, Los Pipitos has been very successful!
