February 2017 – Thank you to our Rick’s Classroom volunteers
A group of 17 enthusiastic volunteers traveled to Nicaragua between February 9th-18th, to build Rick’s Classroom in La Ceibita in honour of their dear friend Rick Mera.
The group worked hard to dig the foundation for Rick’s Classroom, and lay the first bricks for what will soon be a brand new classroom for this wonderful community.
The kids, parents, and teachers at La Ceibita gave a warm welcome fiesta and spent the week working and playing alongside our volunteers. The relationships and bonds formed in just a week speak to the kindness and love shown by our SchoolBOX Ambassadors. One highlight was Valentine card making on Valentine’s Day!
We want to thank this generous and lively group for ‘Making Education Possible’ in honour of their friend Rick Mera.
