Thousands of children in Nicaragua do not attend school for many reasons — but they all stem from poverty. Some of them live in very remote communities with no schools; others cannot afford the extra resources they need like clothes or notebooks. But a majority is forced to choose between going to school and working to help their parents meet the basic needs of their families.
For the thousands of children who attend Fabretto centers and schools each day, accessing quality education is a significant achievement. For Jostin and Octavio, it has meant the opportunity to become future professionals who can break the cycle of poverty in their families.
Jostin, a Little Future Teacher
Since his first year, Jostin has attended the Miguel Magone Center in Quebrada Honda, a small coffee-growing community in Madriz, only a few kilometers from Honduras. Through the early education program, Jostin is preparing for his next stage in schooling; he is taking a small but significant step towards becoming a teacher which, at only three years old, he already wants to be.
Estelí’s Future Doctor
Every day and with a lot of effort from his parents, he attends the María Auxiliadora Center to receive his favorite class: literature. While his father works as a driver and his mother as a housekeeper, his aunt makes sure that Octavio continues his second grade successfully. For his mother, Fabretto is an opportunity to create a new way of life, to make her little Octavio fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor.
Thank you for giving more children in our programs the joy of being able to choose to go to school and fulfill their dreams.
