Challenge

The Teen Night School is located in the Jorge Mitrov barrio in the south-central zone of Managua. Unemployment among people of the barrio is almost 80% and inhabitants must tolerate a high crime rate. The majority of residents work in the informal sector completing tasks such as cleaning car windows at stoplights, making candy or selling coconuts from horse-drawn carts.

Solution

The goal of the Teen Night School is to assist students in obtaining their primary school diploma so they can continue their studies and receive a high school or a technical diploma.

Long-Term Impact

The program seeks to help young people in the poorest areas of Managua avoid the violent and at- risk elements of their society, by giving them the education and skills to find better jobs to support themselves and their families.
