PROFESORA MARISOLPAZ ALI PRE SCHOOL TAKING SHAPE
Funds from Friends of Morazan and BLINC from this year’s Copa Sandino are helping create a new preschool in the Paz Ali barrio of Puerto Morazan. The children have been using a simple wooden shack with a mud floor. Highlighted as a priority area by the Ministry of Education, our development worker Gioconda negotiated with the community and the land was offered to us by Don Cristobal who lives nearby. He said he wanted his children to have a better education and refused to sell the land despite coming under pressure from his brothers. He preferred to give it for the new school.

SAN JOSE PRE SCHOOL NEW BUILD PROJECT

Friends of Morazan has been supported by the Malden Golf Club near London http://www.maldengolfclub.com/contact/  and their recent Ladies captain Tamsin Loke who together raised over £3,000 GBP to pay half the costs of building the San Jose pre-school. The children were having lessons under a tree as they had no building and when it rained, classes were called off. The school is in the rural Luis Andino community in the Puerto Morazan municipality.
