For many in Nicaragua, 2018 was about resilience. In the midst of a socio-economic crisis, members of La Familia Fabretto – parents, teachers, students – made exceptional sacrifices to continue making progress toward advancing education in the most underserved communities, even during the most difficult phase of armed conflict.
To review 2018 is to honor the Nicaraguan people and their ability to keep moving forward amidst adversity. I have seen teachers like Francis risk it all just to keep the doors of our centers open and provide a safe space for children to play, learn, and dream; determined mothers like Neydis who, despite living in poverty, are keeping the faith and hope of a better future for their children; young women like Katherine who are making a steady income through farming in the midst of an economic crisis.
Having witnessed their beautiful resilience, I have no doubt Nicaragua will bloom like a spring flower and thrive. This is the country that inspired our founder, Padre Fabretto, to leave everything behind for its people.
Today we honor their resilient stories and recognize your outstanding generosity entrusted to Fabretto. Thank you for believing in Nicaragua.
