The Barrio Planta Project (BPP), a local nonprofit organization that provides free educational programming to hundreds of children in San Juan del Sur and surrounding areas just concluded our ninth year of operations in 2017, closing with our most successful fundraising campaign; Barrio Planta Project: The Greatest Gift.
BPP wishes to thank all of our supporters who helped us double the funds raised last year. In 2018, BPP plans to open a new school in Mexico while continuing to enhance the established programs in San Juan del Sur and Escamequita by offering new courses, doubling the student population and increasing quality of academic programming.
This year, courses will be offered exclusively through the Ministry of Education (MINED) who will select students in San Juan del Sur (and the rural areas south of San Juan del Sur including Escamequita) based on merit and attendance, to participate in BPP’s English as a Second Language (ESL) and additional extracurricular programs.
Stay tuned to learn more about BPP’s goals this year, and for more information on how you can help.
