July 2015 – Supplies 4 Success Program for 2015 Complete
On July 1st, the SchoolBOX team delivered educational packages to the 89th school of 2015. Students and teachers at the San Antonio School (sponsored by the Amazing People Gala and Equator Coffee Roasters) were all smiles as they received their school supplies.
SchoolBOX Director Ronald Chavarria gave the crowd of students, parents and teachers a rousing speech on the importance of education. The importance of educational packages is especially important for this rural, isolated community, located on top of a mountain near the Honduran border. Parents struggle to make ends meet and sometimes work is prioritized over going to school.
The parents in the community told SchoolBOX that they are happy that their children are being supported with educational packages, as they otherwise would not be able to afford them.
In 2015, SchoolBOX has been proud to deliver 16,674 educational packages to students and teachers in 89 communities across Nicaragua. Our partner communities are supported with our Supplies 4 Success program every year! Thanks to our fantastic donors and supporters for making this possible.
