Festivities in Rincón de García

High school director Álvaro Francisco Mondragón Maldonado and a number of the students at Instituto Jose Dolores Estrada in Rincón de García celebrate cutting the ribbon and inaugurating their new perimeter fence which the school community had requested. Workers contracted by Somos Ohana Nicaragua recently completed the fence and portal that will control access to the school grounds, permitting the students to grow a garden of vegetables that can be enjoyed by the families without fear of marauders, both 2- and 4-legged.

Some students performed folkloric dancing in a classroom, seen in front of a Sandinista flag. The government fully supports the school and teachers’ salaries, but Somos Ohana Nicaragua helps with special projects that wouldn’t be affordable otherwise.
