Preschools Now Functioning in the Rural Area of Mulukuku Nicaragua Thank You
By Sandra Price - outreach
A call from the mountains some 7 hours by truck and horseback from Mulukukú was heard in early May. There is a dilapidated primary school In the community of Holy Family 15 preschoolers met in the back of a multi-graded one-room primary school where 72 primary students with one teacher have been studying. Now the third of September a new and larger primary classroom and a smaller preschool were completed and inaugurated by parents, teachers, and representatives from neighboring schools, churches, the city council of Mulukukú, and friends. In three months, fathers and community residents with a master builder had hauled materials from trucks to the site and built the schools.
But that is not all. The parents had spent the previous two months with machetes, shovels, picks, and wheelbarrows constructing 5 kilometers of dirt roadway by hand so that the trucks could bring the construction materials, sand, rock, and blocks closer to the school leaving them on about 20 minutes to haul everything by hand and by horses to the school location. It was indeed a reason to celebrate. A kitchen was set up in the now-abandoned old school and a royal lunch served to all who attended.
We want to thank you for all your support of this program. We have now met our goal and the children in these mountainous communities have their preschools. This will be our last report and we want to thank you for partnering with the parents of this rural area to build preschools.
