buildOn has constructed 218 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’s Human Development Index, Nicaragua is now the second lowest ranked country in the Western Hemisphere behind Haiti. 79.9% of the population earn less than $2 per day, and a disproportionately large number of those living in poverty are women.
