Rehabilitation of El Manzano #2 Elementary School

by Waves of Hope Vetted since 2013 Site Visit Verified


The Manzano Dos elementary school is in horrible condition and with over 120 students attending classes daily we need your help to renovate and update this school to ensure a clean, comfortable and most importantly safe learning environment.

The school was built over 30 years but has not been well maintained. It is located close to the ocean and the salt has also caused a lot of damage. The roof has lots of holes and so when it rains puddles form inside the classroom. The structure holding up the roof is not stable.


This project will include a complete restoration of all previous concrete work, the installation of a new roof and a new roofing sub-structure, new washrooms (currently the washrooms do not have doors) and new windows. We will also be refurbishing the insides of the classrooms including the furnishings.

Long-Term Impact

It is important for all communities to have a safe school for its students to attend. Once complete our Waves of Hope maintenance manager will take on the responsibility of maintaining the school long term.
