School Outreach Program Reaching out to the Surrounding Schools in Great Need
Schools in Need There are 51 Schools in the surrounding area that need attention. They are all in great need of school supplies and uniforms. Most also need fresh paint, play equipment, and adequate lighting. In June I had the opportunity to visit four schools.
Villa Nuevo This small one room school is located 6 minutes from Nuevo Paraiso village. There are 29 students in grades 1-6 and one teacher. Many of the children did not have uniforms, which made them stand out from the rest. Many did not have paper to write on. There is no play area for the kids.
Santos Pablo Gonzales This is a two room school located ten minutes from Nuevo Paraiso. 71 students, 6 grades, and two teachers. There are 10 children not attending because they do not have uniforms or shoes. They require window screens, and school supplies.
Rigoberto Erazo Martinez 1 teacher – 46 students. This is a two room school with one teacher. The teacher can only see half the students while she is teaching. Located 15 minutes from Nuevo Paraiso. This school needs supplies. The kindergarten room is very dark. There is a swing set, but no swings on it.
Jose Agustin Cruz This is a 45 minute to one hour drive from Nuevo Paraiso, accessible by truck only. 28 students. Half of the students are sitting outside the classroom because they won’t fit inside. The director of all the schools in the area said this is the worst one. They are using a borrowed building and are waiting for the government to build a new school.
