As the final step in our renovation of the rural Mata de Caña primary school, Somos Ohana Nicaragua is providing requested fencing to protect the school and the vegetables that the students are growing there from wandering animals.

We have completed the new cafeteria roof, a working latrine, a new “pila” or outdoor basin for hand washing, interior and exterior painting, window cleaning and screening, and a sidewalk. We are working on getting moveable whiteboards constructed for the classrooms.

Before our organization got involved, the school had had no regular, serious maintenance since being constructed by a US ngo over 20 years ago.
