Give Back for Backpacks

Primary school (through 5th grade) is free in Nicaragua, but students need clothes and supplies. With $50, you provide a child with a backpack stuffed with a uniform (including a belt for boys), shoes and socks, and enough supplies for the first three months of school. The recipients are chosen by the community leaders based on family need; only one child per family can receive a scholarship until all families in need have been served. Community leaders follow up with the primary age becados (scholarship recipients). If a child does not complete the school year, that family is not eligible for any of their children to receive a scholarship the following year.
