UNICEF Reports on Childhood in Nicaragua:
Escuela Adelante will build San Juan del Sur’s first full-time bilingual school for pre-K through high school. The future campus will also host extracurricular courses, hands-on technical training, and Chicas Adelante, the female mentorship program. Once the campus is finished, five hundred students a year will have access to bilingual education of an unprecedented quality.
Our students and teachers deserve a fantastic facility -- one that is easy commuting distance from San Juan, that offers room to grow a campus with dynamic classrooms, a large bilingual library, laboratory and art/music space, with access to outdoor environments for learning about agriculture, building and mechanical trades. On the new campus, we will expand classes to include those on our long and growing waitlist, and gradually extend our popular bilingual program all the way through high school.
We built the first building in 2019! Now's a great time to help complete the campus and make a lasting contribution to the educational opportunities of San Juan del Sur.

The average Nicaraguan income is about 200 USD per month - in many families, only one parent's income sustains a household of children, parents and grandparents. To offer real opportunity, Escuela Adelante needs a generous scholarship fund to supplement local tuition resources. Your contribution of $25 a month funds Programa Destino for one child.
In order to run our school at the highest standards, we provide each child with a personal textbook, and we fill our classrooms with books, flash cards, learning games and art supplies. We also provide computing equipment, scientific models and microscopes. We hire highly qualified, experienced teachers and we pay them at a livable wage that surpasses the typically low Nicaraguan teachers' salary. This commitment to excellence and equity requires an Operations budget that is about 10% of our annual budget. Please help us continue to foster engaged and active learning.
Escuela Adelante accepts in-kind donations. We need building supplies, computers, books and school supplies, and would love to partner with you, whether you are in Nicaragua or abroad.
