Community Name: Rio Lindo, Nicaragua
School Name: Escuela El Buen Pastor
In 2014, the community of Rio Lindo, Nicaragua and Project Schoolhouse collaborated to construct a new Two-room school. Project Schoolhouse also built a spring fed water system just to supply the school with clean water.
This students were splitting time between a ramshackle school building and additional space in a cow barn. This community had to build a road by hand using picks and shovels in order for the trucks to arrive with construction materials. In addition to the school, the community built a kitchen and a dining room for the kids to eat in.
