Carolyn’s Ometepe Project
The Forgotten Children of the Land of Lakes and Volcanoes
Closing date: 01 April 2022
Welcome to my Stewardship fundraising page. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give.
This project began in 2018 to support schools in two extremely poor communities on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua to which a further remote school has been added in 2020. Funds are used to provide uniforms for pupils, educational equipment and opportunities to complete training. We have supported internet access, cultural activities and football. In 2020 we repaired the infrasctruture in the schools. The country is dependent on unpreductable income from tourism. Those who do not work for the government, work in the fields. We want to give these communities hope for the future. Sanitation is a high priority currently being addressed.
All donations support the schools. There are no other expenses.
In 2020 we raised approiximately £10,000 despite the pandemic! We would like to keep this up!
