La Ceiba Preschool, Communidad La Ceiba, Nicaragua 1998

La Ceiba Preschool was a project to convert a cotton-ginning factory into a preschool for the community. The building was originally constructed of fired clay bricks and reinforced concrete. For safety reasons, the project removed the brick and enclosed the reinforced concrete frame with wood framing and fiber reinforced cement panels, wood windows and doors. The final project had two classrooms and a kitchen. The project was built with the help of the community and volunteers from the United States.
