Challenge

Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America. According to the United Nations, 30 percent of the population lives in poverty and 8 percent in extreme poverty. Mexico also struggles with 53.8 percent of children living in poverty. Education is linked to ending destitution. BPP seeks to help children rise out of poverty by adulthood by offering job-targeted education, such as computer science, in some of the poorest neighborhoods. We hope to sponsor 5 more children for the program.

Solution

BPP provides lunches, transportation, and education to children living in poverty in Latin America. Public schools are open for half a day with only enough resources to offer basic classes like reading and math. Costs to get to school, hunger, and lack of educational resources keep kids stuck in destitution. BPP solves this problem by helping kids stay on track academically, landing higher paying jobs as adults with targeted skills such as English as a Second Language or science studies.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 5 more children, allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being.
