NICARAGUA—FH assisted a Nicaraguan school to increase attendance. FH worked with the community to build a school fence, provided school supplies and taught families the importance of education. Children began going and staying in school to complete their grades.
How we work
Relationships with families
Through home visits, FH staff teaches parents the value of their children’s education. Parents start sending their children to school and participate in supporting schools.
FH works with schools and leaders of the community to facilitate construction of new classrooms or buildings, provide school supplies and promote the importance of higher education.
A future without poverty
Children are encouraged to complete elementary, high school and continue on to college. Children become professionals, leaving poverty behind, and bringing expertise to their community.
