In Nicaragua, being born in a rural community often precludes access to high school education and all the opportunities in life that come with it, especially for women. Many rural families practice subsistence farming and do not generate enough income to meet their basic needs even excluding education. The Free High School of San Juan del Sur gives these and other individuals who are excluded from regular schools a chance at secondary education and a better life. In 2012, Random Acts fundraised to help them purchase a bus. In 2015, we set our sights much higher: a Center for Human Development which now serves as a beautiful campus for the Free High School. Our team of dedicated supporters raised money and took trips to Nicaragua every year from 2015 to 2018 to watch this dream turn into reality!
Although we’re no longer asking supporters to fundraise for a spot on a trip, we’re leaving this Crowdrise page up for both fundraisers and donors. Every dollar raised will help empower underprivileged women and men in Nicaragua through education as we continue to support the Free High School in the coming years. You can also donate directly to the page. Dreams to Acts: Nicaragua would not have been possible without supporters like you. Thank you!
