San Francisco School joins ViviendasLeon in Nicaragua

Twenty nine eighth graders and three teachers from the San Francisco School joined the staff of ViviendasLeon for five days in April to help with projects in the rural community of Goyena and much more.

The students inaugurated our project to provide trees for reforestation, food and soil reconstruction, a partnership with Trees for the Future. They also spent the week in the Madre Tierra Art Center, an after school arts program run by artist Daniel Pulido for students in the community, and helped to continue building our project for a community center in the neighborhood of Nueva Vida.

The students also for the first time took an early morning tour of the Juan Venado estuary and island reserve near Poneloya to see wildlife, and spent many late afternoons swimming in the new big pool near Fundeci
