Growing and Learning in 2016

As the Nicaraguan school year ended, we said hasta pronto to students, teachers, and friends in the communities where we work and celebrated Graduation Day. We also took a moment to look back on the past year’s accomplishments and what’s in store for the New Year.

This is the reality: Nicaragua continues to be the poorest Spanish-speaking country in the world, and the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere after Haiti. Resources for education, particularly in rural communities, are scarce. Too many children repeat grade levels or drop out of school altogether, and fewer than half of youth finish secondary education.

Our Response in 2016

 

In response to this need, we provided 19,000 students with primary and secondary education programs in 2016. Additional highlights include:

  • 443 Nicaraguan public schools supported with educational services
  • 800,000+ school lunches served
  • 2,100+ teachers and parents trained on strategies to support children’s education and health in the classroom and at home
  • Fabretto’s newest Education Center in San Juan de Oriente, Masaya continued to grow to support over 500
  • The CARE-Cargill project Nourishing the Future, which supports 26 schools and 300+ farmers, joined the Fabretto family
  • The Nuria Garcia Center celebrated its first year of providing early childhood development and pre-natal care services in rural Nicaragua
  • 277 volunteers from the U.S., Spain, Canada, Luxembourg, Austria, and Germany visited Fabretto and shared their time and talents to support children in Nicaragua
Looking ahead to 2017

 

We are thrilled that new partnerships will allow Fabretto to expand its primary education programs even further:

  • New education, nutrition, and community development projects will reach children and families in municipalities of Granada, Chinandega, Masaya, Ticuantepe, & Tipitapa
  • Extension of the USAID-funded BASES project in RACCS through 2017 and expansion of its literacy programs to support more local public schools

Your donations have made all of this possible, and we are deeply grateful to all who have contributed to Fabretto in 2016. Thank you!
