A portion of the funds received from purchasing teaching resources through the Teachers Pay Teachers links on this site as well as fees from school workshops are used to support students and families in Barrio Panamá.
Barrio Panamá is located in the poorest part of La Concha, Nicaragua. The fumes from the Masaya Volcano pass directly overhead, so almost nothing grows there. The Panama School services about 200 of the 700 children in the community.
Jorge is a teacher at the Panamá School in la La Concha, Nicaragua.
About 90 houses receive NO running water at all. In the dry season the Town Hall sends up 7 tankers of water per week which provides about 2 barrels of water per family for a week – for everything. I supplement this with another 3 tankers a week so most families get an extra barrel.
The kids enjoy many of the new activities that I often bring (thanks to you!!!), particularly jump rope, which we used to play math games.
School supplies that I bring to Nicaragua Thank you to all who support my website and my TPT store for making it possible
The camioneta is loaded and ready to go!! Materials for Karen’s culutral center, the reading corner, Jader’s project in San Caralampio, the Buen Esperanza school in Loma Negra, the Ruben Dario school and the Los Amadores school in Barrio Panamá are included! So many great projects happening in the La Concha.
Los Pipitos is a national organization that works with families and children with disabilities in Nicaragua. A few years ago the special education school run by Los Pipitos in La Concha was robbed of everything. Until recently they only had chairs, one table and a chalkboard. There are at least 15 children with disabilities in La Concha, however only two have been going to school, as the school has no resources. Some children are integrated into public schools, while others stay home. I allocate a portion of my TPT sales to this program.
Thank you so much to everyone who has purchased items through my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
