Thank you all very much for your donations. With your help we have raised $ 1600. This means we are close to the $ 2,000 goal, which sponsors the enrollment of two students in BPP for an entire semester.
We still don't know what the first semester of 2021 holds, but we are confident that BPP will keep its doors open (either virtually or in person) for our students.
We have finished our second semester of 2020 despite the pandemic and the 2 Hurricanes that have affected Nicaragua so much. Families are preparing for a variety of possibilities at the end of this year, as health issues still prevent many from working or attending events in person.
We still have over $ 3,000 more to raise to sponsor 5 students for next semester, and we hope that our annual back-to-school fundraising efforts will help us reach that goal.

Back to school second semester 2020 - COVID
By Kiara Olivas - Development Coordinator BPP Nicaragua
With your help we raised $ 1,081 and we are grateful for the support of all donors.
Thanks to you, we have reopened the doors of our school in San Juan del Sur to start classes for the second semester at BPP. BPP staff and teachers have created a coronavirus prevention plan to provide safety for our students.
In our school in Escamequita we have continued with classes from home with the visit of the teachers once a week, although the heavy rains have been a great challenge in this rural community, we are very proud of our students and teachers in Escamequita for their effort and dedication. Despite the bad weather, they have persevered, traveling long distances across rivers to reach our students' homes.
We have yet to raise $ 3,919 to continue our staff and teachers' plans to continue offering educational opportunities to our students and we hope that our fundraising efforts will help us reach that goal.

We're close to sponsoring another student!
By Nicole Hicks - External Relations Coordinator
With your help we have raised $800. This means we're close to the goal of $1,000, which sponsors one student's enrollment at BPP for an entire semester. We do not yet know what the fall semester holds in store for us, but we are certain that BPP will keep its doors open (either virtually or in-person) to students this year.
BPP staff and students are currently enjoying their summer break, despite record rains and heat in Nicaragua this year. Families are preparing for a variety of possibilities for the fall as health concerns still prevent many from working or attending in-person events.
We still have over $4,000 more to raise in order to sponsor 5 students for the next semester, and hope that our annual Back to School fundraising efforts help us reach that goal.
