Families should not have to choose between quality education and survival.
Many families migrate during the peak coffee harvest season to seek additional work, isolating children from public schools and increasing the risk of child labor.
We partner with large coffee farms and local teachers to provide high quality education for children in remote coffee villages and collaborate with the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education to implement primary school curriculum and educational activities year round. We provide teachers with adequate supplies, including books, computers, and healthy food.
We offer year round educational programs so migrant children have the opportunity to experience a structured learning environment as well.
Children are provided with two healthy meals per day, doctor visits, and learn about nutrition as well as effective handwashing and hygiene skills.
We work with educational experts in the U.S. to implement brain-based programming to help children develop skills needed for personal and job success.
We provide workshops, conduct home visits in the community to develop rapport and engage families as partners in their child’s education.
We work with large coffee farms to create a formal school on-site to ensure children have access to a safe and quality learning environment.
