School time is back!

March 5, 2011

The school for this year has started and we could not be more excited! Last year, our students made us proud with a retention rate of 98% and pass rate of 89%. This year among the 250 kids going to school we have one university student studying architecture and two going-to-be graduates from High School.

Kids writing to their sponsors

Our office was a scene of organized chaos on the inscription weekend when we do all our school related preparations. Inscription time is when we update all data from the participating families, have parents and kids sign contracts for the new year, get kids to write to their sponsors and distribute school supplies to the kids for the year. The best part – this time our teenagers did most of the running of these activities.

And now let the school time begin!

In Nicaragua 50% of the kids that start 1st grade never finish 5th grade. It is our goal to make this percentage drop significantly.

$30/month is what it takes us at Empowerment International to put a child in school. If you would like to help a child stay in school and get better life, please click on the link below or contact us
