Your Donations Built This School InCuyuca Central, Nicaragua

With your help, we've built hope for students in Cuyuca Central, Nicaragua

Uptown Cheapskate and Kid to Kid have partnered with buildOn to fund and build schools in rural communities in developing countries. In December 2016, buildOn completed a new school in Cuyuca Central, Nicaragua funded by your donations. Nicaragua has 6 million people with more than 29% of the population living below the poverty line and more than 16% unable to read and write. The students of Cuyuca Central previously learned in an old, rundown school building. With their new facilities, they are able to learn in a functional building equipped with desks, space for every student, and bathrooms.

Meet the students of Cuyuca Central, Nicaragua

These students are studying reading, writing, and mathematics in their new school. Girls will be able to study side-by-side with boys and participate equally. Through the donations we’ve collected at our Charity Fill-A-Bag Sales, you’ve helped break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and expectations for children like these. The students of Cuyuca Central thank you for your donations!
