Project Report | Oct 16, 2023
Almost to the finish line!

By Jaime Hunter | Executive Director

Next year marks a milestone for Escuela Adelante!

We look forward to the launch of secondary school. When we first started thinking about the creation of a bilingual, innovative, and accessible school in Nicaragua, our minds originally went right to high school! We thought about the direct link from high school to university or career, and we wanted to be there for that important big life step and transition.

As we began to develop the concept further and preparel, we realized that the seeds aren't best sown after a plant has taken root and that the best way to make a lasting impact is to plant the seed at a very young age. And it was at that time that we began to develop preschool. This was 2016 and nearly 8 years have passed since then. We started with the youngest children and worked our way up adding a grade each year.

Now, nearly a decade has gone by and those students are set to go to high school, which in Nicaragua is 7th grade.

We have looked forward to this moment for a long time and it is thanks to all of our donors that we have gotten this far as it never would have been possible to create such a school from scratch without the backing of so many wonderful individuals like you.

As Executive Director and Co-Founder, I truly see the finish line ahead! But, we still have one big problem. The problem is that the growth of our campus does not coincide with the growth of the school. As we add a grade each year, we’ve been unable to add a classroom too! Each classroom fully furnished costs about $55k. That's why every single dollar of this project goes to cover infratructure.

In order to meet our goals for 2024 and high school, we need donors to:

  • Mark December 5 on your calendar. It’s Giving Tuesday! And it’s the best day of the year to donate so we can receive a match through GlobalGiving.
  • Give a one-time gift on Giving Tuesday or sign up to become a new recurring donor and help us earn double that day through the matching program.

Whether you give that day or not, thanks to everyone who continues to support us.

We have remained so dedicated to this project all these years thanks to your friendship and generosity. It not only helps us grow, it helps us know we are doing good work.

Almost to the finish line!
