August 2017 – Tom & Sarah’s dream of 100 classrooms is front page news

Tom Affleck (SchoolBOX Founder) & Sarah Kerr (Executive Director) made the front page of Inside Toronto on August 17th, sharing their excitement and anticipation of a huge milestone for SchoolBOX: construction of our 100th classroom scheduled for spring 2018!

Since they built the very first classroom for SchoolBOX in Nicaragua in 2008, Tom & Sarah always dreamed of some day reaching classroom 100. Though it seemed far-fetched a decade ago, their dream will soon be a reality and they are inviting YOU to help! Volunteers are invited to join a team in Nicaragua to build classroom 100 in February/March 2018. For more information on our volunteer program visit

Tom & Sarah’s inspiring story was also picked up by Q Costa Rica and Today Nicaragua, English language newspapers serving the Central American expat communities. Reach those articles here and here.
