THE STORY:

Many of you were kind enough to support myself and Random Acts with Hope to Haiti, a project to build an orphanage for children in Haiti. At this very moment the Jacmel Children’s Center is having a huge impact on the local community and is changing lives every day.

Secondary education in Nicaragua is something that many adolescents and adults have not had access to.  Many children work to support their families after primary school, women who have had children cannot attend and young people who live too far away to make the daily trip are rarely educated to a level beyond basic literacy. 

The Free High School of San Juan del Sur opened in 2002 and has been trying to change that by offering free classes every Saturday to these students (aged between 13 and 50).  For these students, this school is their only opportunity to receive a quality education.  It has been known for students to cross fast-flowing rivers and walk for 15 kilometres to get to school (several did this whilst heavily pregnant!). To date, 683 students have graduated and many were the first in their family to receive a high school diploma.  This diploma opens doors to advanced technical degrees in accounting, tourism, business administration, and construction (also offered by the Free School). 

Currently the Free High School operates out of an elementary (primary) school building built for children where there isn’t enough computer equipment, space, chairs, or desks.  Random Acts would like to build a campus with proper facilities for these young adults. 

We all know what a difference having an education makes when breaking the cycle of poverty, I’d love to be able to help Random Acts achieve this. 

If you have any questions about the project please feel free to ask.  This is the link to the Free School’s website and to Random Act’s write up on the project.
