Las Escaleras Satellite School

Las Escaleras Satellite School, Matagalpa, Nicaragua

Following the inauguration of Las Escaleras Middle School in March 2018, the Trustees were informed of an opportunity to fund a new concept for the Matagalpa Department. This would be a satellite school built within the grounds of the middle school which would be for the education of parents, adolescents and youths. The purpose was to provide online training and motivation to increase the employability of those that used the facilities. Signed off in June 2018 the satellite school includes 2 full furnished classrooms, sanitation, water, computers, furniture and air conditioning.

Inaugurated in March 2019 the satellite school has created a huge amount of interest in the local community and we are looking forward to visiting it in March 2020. Our thanks to Fundacion Nicafrance and the local government and community for their support with this project.
