About Us

Project Schoolhouse was formed in 2004 to invest in education and water in rural communities in Nicaragua. Project Schoolhouse works to reduce poverty and inequality in rural communities by promoting literacy, basic education, and improved health. We achieve this by building community water systems, building schools, and providing secondary education scholarships.

Our Mission

Through community partnerships, Project Schoolhouse builds water systems, schools, and careers in rural Nicaragua.

Our Team

We accomplish everything we do because of our dedicated board of directors, volunteers, and staff.

Our Vision

We believe that every child has a right to a good education, that every community has a right to clean water , and that schools can be a foundation for a stronger, more vital and sustainable future for the whole community.

Futuro Fund

The Futuro Fund fuels Project Schoolhouse’s life altering work in rural Nicaragua where infrastructure and support is minimal and citizens are all but forgotten. Dry secure schools, clean running water, and basic sanitation don’t just improve lives, they facilitate bright futures.

Our Core Values

Respect

We respect local cultures, communities, and people that we partner with. We treat them as development experts who have identified the most pertinent problems for their communities as well as the solutions to those problems.


Collaboration

We work to collaborate with both our partner communities in Nicaragua as well as our local community in the US.

Innovation

While we trust our partners to know how they want to solve their identified problems, we also work to continually improve our approach to implementing those solutions in terms of school design, delivery of clean water, educational opportunities and sanitation improvements.


Focus

We focus on the few things we can do best with the biggest impact

Catalyst

We seek to serve as catalysts in our partner communities for them to continually help themselves achieve their own development goals.

Sustainability

We strive to implement solutions that are sustainable in the long term and put our partner communities in control of their own development path.
