September 2018 – Back to School & Back to Work
We are delighted to restart operations this September after a difficult past few months of in Nicaragua. This year has been quite chaotic for students in our partner communities because of the unrest and violence that has plagued Nicaragua. Their school year has been disrupted due to situation that began at the tail end of April.
We are so appreciative for all of your support during this time of crisis. Without your support, we would not be able to continue operations while supporting our team and their families. On behalf of the entire SchoolBOX team, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
After careful reflection and consideration, we have made the decision to slowly resume operations in September.
Our team is so happy to continue doing what they do best – empowering Nicaraguans to get a basic education through safe and secure classrooms, libraries full of thought provoking books, and educational packages filled with the necessities for our students & teachers.
Over the past few weeks, our team has begun delivering school supply packages to a few schools, and they were overjoyed by the response from the students.
To commemorate ‘Back to School’ and ‘Back to Work’ for SchoolBOX, a generous anonymous donor has stepped up to pledge $5000 in matching funds for all donations made in September to our Supplies Program. These funds will help kickstart students and teachers in our partner communities with packages of educational supplies for the new school year. Click here to donate!
