AFF is proud to contribute to building and ongoing operations of schools around the world. AFF partnered with other Non-Profits to build a school in central Nicaragua. This school uses the curriculum of the Nicaraguan Department of Education and is operated through a partnership of US Non-Profits and National staff. Your financial support helps purchase books, supplies, and fund a school lunch program. Students receive lunch at school and for some this is the only meal of the day.
As part of the program, the basic health of the children is monitored by teachers and visiting health care professionals. Children learn about hygiene and how to maintain personal health. One hundred percent of your gift provides direct support for your student’s school and programs. The Nicaraguan school year begins in early February and ends in early December, so support for each student must be provided for the entire calendar year.
