It's already 42 years

 

Dear friends and dear friends

 

Receive a warm greeting full of abundant blessings and brotherhood.

 

Traces of Fe y Alegría in Nicaragua back in 1974 with the opening of our first school: the Roberto Clemente School that today includes more than 1,500 students in Ciudad Sandino. Our work since its inception has been a bridge to provide quality education and in that foundational year we wanted to provide education to children who were victims of the earthquake. Today there are other our beneficiaries, but something we have been clear from the very beginning is that we place ourselves on the borders, where there is greater need.

 

This day we are fulfilling 42 years; are more than four decades since Fe y Alegría began his walk in these Nicaraguan land and kept walking beside the favourites of God.

 

At present we are reaching more than twelve thousand students directly in the classroom, but we are also serving our educational proposal to more than 56 thousand people in different educational methods, especially we wanted to get to the new faces of exclusion: women, young people who neither study nor work, working children because we want to with our proposal Fe y Alegría goes beyond the classroom and out of the walls to give opportunity to who has been denied.

 

This educational dream of continuous work, surrender preferential option for the poor, to bring quality education to many girls, children, adolescents and young people has been possible to the efforts of many teachers, managers, technicians and administrative teams.

 

The educational dream of continuous work, surrender, preferential option for the poor, to bring quality education to many girls, children, adolescents and young people has been possible through the efforts of many teachers, teachers, management teams, technical, administrative, community and organizations that have joined our work with solidarity and economic aid.

 

Quality education is a fundamental right not only for the development of the individual, but for society in general and to enforce other rights. So I want to invite you to join our movement with this dream, we want to add more people in favour of education in the country, do not want a poor education, we want quality education today and the coming years.

 

I can only tell many and infinite thanks for being part of our movement and for having made it possible for the seed of education that we planted 42 years ago is paying off. Let's move forward.

 

 

Congratulations to the whole family of Fe y Alegría Nicaragua and we continue fulfilling many years working for the education of our country. God bless you.
