Schools Built to Date


Students Attending

buildOn has constructed 234 schools in Nicaragua, developing a new generation of educated and literate citizens.

Despite enjoying growth in regards to health and economy over the last twenty years, according to the UN Human Development Index, Nicaragua is now the fourth lowest ranked country in the Western Hemisphere. Nicaragua’s small villages and remote communities often lack access to quality school structures and classrooms, and a disproportionately large number of those living in poverty are women.
