April 2016 – El Porvenir School Inaugurated

On Friday, April 15, 2016, the El Porvenir School officially opened a newly constructed classroom in front of the SchoolBOX staff, students, teachers and the community. The children were all smiles as they streamed into the new classroom for the first time.

Previously, children were learning in a wooden structure covered in plastic that was constructed by the parents within the community. They were exposed to the elements, as the structure did not protect them from the rain or dust.

The community is so thankful to SchoolBOX and the group of international volunteers for helping to build a classroom and to encourage the students to get a basic education.

Special thanks to Amazing People and Accora Village for sponsoring the classroom!

Check out the video below to learn more about the school.
