December 2017 – SchoolBOX’s 95th classroom at El Higueral Complete
The SchoolBOX team, community members, students and government officials gathered on Tuesday, December 19th to celebrate the opening of a new classroom and mini-library at El Higueral School in Chinandega, Nicaragua. The community was buzzing with excitement, as they saw the completed classroom for the first time and watched as students discovered the new books that their school is now equipped with thanks to a generous donor.
Grade 1 and grade 5 students at El Higueral were previously studying in the same classroom. They faced not only extreme overcrowding, but also danger that the classroom would collapse due to extensive damage to the structure. They are so grateful that they get to start the 2018 school year in January learning in a brand new classroom that is safe, spacious and structurally sound!
