Great news for the community of Tipitapa

A bitter sweet update today – the Villa Japon School in Nicaragua will be receiving a newly constructed classroom; unfortunately it won’t be through Building Walls of Wisdom.

In short, the community of Tipitapa applied to multiple NGOs for the construction of their new school and, as it turns out, one of these NGOs had the existing funds available and has slated to start construction as soon as possible. This is something we have seen in other parts of the world, and is understandable given some of the broken promises communities like these have seen in the past. The community wanted to maximize their chances in getting their children into a new, safe building that is conducive for real learning; put in their position, I am sure we would all do the same.

The great thing to focus on is that this community is getting the school they so desperately need & we have the opportunity to help another equally-deserving community. With that, I invite you to visit the project page of our (now) current project; the school of Jardines de Apoyo.

Thanks to everyone who originally voted for the community of Tipitapa & the donations that have come in so far. Rest assured that all donated funds will now be going towards the school of Jardines de Apoyo.
