Intentional Holistic Education
Our community-based educational program for poor children and their families in three extremely impoverished communities in Granada, Nicaragua takes a holistic approach to break generational poverty. Weekly home visits are an integral component where parents are encouraged to send their children to school and are mentored on how to support and enhance their children’s education, regardless of their own education level.
Peer-led supplementary tutoring is offered after school to the younger students and let by our high school and university students. Leadership skills are developed by using real-life situations while they lead various projects, share their own talents with students, and tutor the younger girls and boys.
