You definitely must check out the coverage on this United Church sponsored school in Managua, Nicaragua. The Rodolfo Rodriguez Alvarado Preventitive Centre offers not just a decent education, but nutricious meals and snacks as well. Plus crisis counselling such as how II stay off drugs, sexual disease awareness, first-aid training, crime awareness programs and Bible study tied in with vacation retreats II recharge body, mind, & soul.
The United Church Of Canada has sponsored this school IV many years & offers hope II its students by teaching from a Christian perspective. Lets just hope they can keep giving these poor Nicaraguan kids a chance at a good life & to use their educational ability's II help their family's & their nation under President Daniel Ortega prosper.
