Our Mission

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

Through investment in schools, students, and communities, Project Schoolhouse helps rural communities in Nicaragua better advocate for themselves in changing regional economies and political systems. With an emphasis on community-building and local volunteer participation, Project Schoolhouse partners with recipient communities to build new schools, provide clean water, improve sanitation, and help students continue their educations.

Improving the quality of children’s education in rural communities is ever more important as rates of urbanization increase, global economic forces continually squeeze rural producers, and the growing technological requirements of doing business reach into the more remote regions of the world. Literacy and basic education are not luxuries, but represent crucial skills rural communities need in order to adequately advocate for themselves in changing economic and political environments.
