June 2015 – Supplies 4 Success Update
As per June 6, 2015, SchoolBOX has delivered 15,334 educational packages to 14,608 students and 729 teachers in 88 communities across Nicaragua. The entire team, along with high school volunteers from the Bella Cruz School worked extra hard to pack the school supplies in a one week period, after delivery had been delayed by over 2 months.
Because of the efforts of our team and Nicaraguan volunteers, SchoolBOX was able to deliver all of their educational packages on schedule, despite the shipping delay.
The students and teachers were all smiles, as they received their educational packages. Each educational package contains notebooks, pencils, an eraser, pencil sharpener and a ruler.
In a country where many people live on less than $1 per day and half of the children do not get through primary school, an educational package is a big boost for both parents and students. With no disposable income, many families count on the educational package provided by SchoolBOX and their donors to keep their children equipped for the school year.
A big thanks to all of our dedicated donors who are continually ‘Making Education Possible’ for the students and teachers of Nicaragua.
