Back-to-School Day
September 30, 2019


In the midst of a year of hardship and uncertainty brought on by the current political situation in Nicaragua, we have seen our schools provide hope and stability to children and families. Thank you for your generosity during the 2018 Back-to-School Campaign. We had faith that we could raise the money needed to give our staff at the four NRN schools a much needed (and long overdue) raise! And we did it with your help, generosity, and prayers. The $87,500 raised during the campaign allowed us to increase salaries and ensure the ongoing health of the schools! Thank you!

For 26 years, our four NRN schools have provided a quality education and a better future for children living in poverty in Nicaragua. As a generation of graduates are now working and giving back to their communities, we see how our teachers and schools reach far beyond the classroom.

Please join us again to ensure we can support our schools. We are launching our second annual Back-to-School Day campaign on September 1, 2019 for a month of celebration and giving. Our goal is $80,000. All donations will go to general school funding which covers teachers’ salaries, school maintenance, medical attention for students and their family, and many other programs and needs.

Here is how you can help:

  1. DONATE

    If each individual or family sponsoring a student gives $100 to the campaign each year, we can cover the schools’ operational costs. Remember that 100% of all funds donated go to Nicaragua because of the many volunteers who serve our friends in Nicaragua. CLICK HERE

  2. SPONSOR A STUDENT

    Student sponsorship is at the heart of all we do in Nicaragua. Currently, we are in need of 200 sponsors. To learn more and start sponsoring, CLICK HERE
