As the world’s people face the uncertainty and challenges of the novel corona virus, the Nicaraguan college students who are receiving scholarship help from Somos Ohana Nicaragua are in various stages of their work toward a degree.

We are very proud of the following students and will continue to support and encourage them in their dreams to make a better life for themselves, their families and their country.
