Now that we have our offices constructed, thanks to our generous friends and donors, we would like to build an auditorium in our patio space. We will use this for student workshops and meetings, and workshops and programs for the community. There is no meeting space available in San Juan del Sur at this time, so not only will this allow the Fundacion to provide a new form of service to the community through programs for adults, it will be available to rent which will provide a revenue stream.
There is no space for student meetings and workshops in our current offices. We need a room big enough for our 50 students.
An auditorium will be built large enough to seat 50 people.
This will have several long-term impacts. 1. We will be able to provide special programming for our scholarship students, which will include employment skills to help them after they graduate. 2. We will create programming for the adults of the community who wish to continue their education; there is currently nothing like this available. 3. There is no meeting space available for rent in SJDS, the auditorium will be available for rental when not being used by FAJB, thus bringing in revenue.
