Education is a human right with immense power to transform. On its foundation rest the cornerstones of freedom, democracy and sustainable human development.
We believe education is a fundamental human right and essential for the exercise of all other human rights. We facilitate access to quality education for children in Nicaragua through a network of community-based organizations.
The fundamental building block for a quality education in Nicaragua is a clean, safe and secure classroom. But classrooms don’t teach students, teachers do. Inside the classroom the focus shifts to ensuring that teachers have the proper training and resources they need. The third leg of the stool is to support students outside the classroom through extracurricular activities, sports programs, and alternative academies. This is a holistic approach to removing barriers to education, giving children the tools and confidence needed to achieve a brighter future.
Though poor by material standards, Nicaragua is a country rich in ingenuity, pride and potential. Go For Hope believes that sustainable improvements to education must come from within, so we partner with in-country specialists to further shared goals.
