High school scholarships funded

945174_453636481415889_304206658_nThank you to a generous gift of $140, four teens from Las Minitas, Nicaragua, will be attending high school in neighboring El Sauce.

Each $35 scholarship includes support for a backpack, notebooks and transportation up and down the mountain for the Saturday classes. The teens help their family farms in the week, then attend weekend classes. Often, they walk three hours one way.

Congratulations to them!

Russ and Kathy Thomas of Rochester, NY, made the contribution in honor of Wendy and Jim Thomas. Want to join our effort? We are currently raising money to send a Masai young man to guide school (Kenya) and three college scholarships for 2016 to Las Minitas teens Alonso and Jessenia.
