Since Active English opened in 2012 we have used the funds we get from current students to give out full and partial scholarships. We've given more than 40 scholarships & have organized multiple community service activities & events funded by our students and other gentle donors. We want to benefit more students by bringing English Teachers to various villages and rural areas of Nicaragua. You can help us do so!
Out Community Service Program
Starting today until Sept 17th you can donate classroom materials and school supplies, which will be delivered to the Nuestra Señora de Lourdes elementary school, located in a vulnerable area of Chinandega (La Bolsa Community).
According to CEPAL studies, Nicaragua is one of the five countries in Latin America in which school desertion occurs early and its social costs are very hard to reverse.
The country is in the middle of a process of change, and it's a decisive moment to enhance and support education. Here's a list of some of the materials you can donate:
PARTIAL AND FULL SCHOLARSHIPS
This will cover student's tuition, materials + supplies, and transportation (for cases that require it). Your donation can also be used for partial funding to benefit more students.
$30 - 1 Student / 1 Month
$90 - 1 Student / 3 Months
$180 - 1 Student / 6 Months
$300 - 1 Student / 1 Year
MORE WAYS TO HELP
ABOUT THE CRISIS IN NICARAGUA
Nicaragua is facing its hardest socio-political crisis in many years. Student protests, that quickly became nation-wide protests have faced the violent repression of the government leading to more than 300 deaths over the past 4 months, these numbers are confirmed by numerous human-right commissions. Subsequently this has represented a hard blow to the Nicaraguan economy, especially for small businesses and the tourism industry.
We are accepting donations to help elementary school students in vulnerable areas stay in school and also to continue to provide partial and full student aid to students seeking for better opportunities through English.
Help for a day, a week or a month (or even an hour as a class guest). All the work we do at Active is on a part-time basis so you will have plenty of time to travel and get to know our beautiful country! We have plenty of recommendations for you! You can choose between to beautiful cities: Chinandega and Esteli. We will find the project that best fits your aspirations and travel plan!
