We wanted to let you know about important milestones we’ve reached and update you on current projects.
We’ve successfully navigated the new government requirements to continue to operate in Nicaragua. I am grateful to our team in Rio Blanco for their persistence in working through those challenges over the past months. We’re happy to be working. The current school project in Bilampi is going faster than planned, with high levels of community engagement.
We wanted to share this video of our After-School and Programs Coordinators, Cristian and Norma. As they mention, we plan to build two new schools this year in the communities of Bilampi and Rosario Las Vegas. The two schools will complete our work in those communities where we finished fully distributed water systems in 2022. I get a little teary when I hear from them how much these projects mean. I hope you enjoy meeting them. They are an inspiration to the young girls who study in schools we’ve helped build.
