AMERRA'S Volunteer Trip

Four team members of AMERRA CAPITAL MANAGEMENT spent a week in Nicaragua volunteering at Aguas Amarillas School in Tuma-La Dalia, Matagalpa. They participated in various construction activities, played with the children and also explored cultural sites and cuisines of Nicaragua! With the support of AMERRA and Seeds for Progress Foundation (SFP), a new teacher's house is being built at the school, with better conditions for the teachers from other communities that have to stay at the school during the weekdays. 

A couple of the volunteers expressed:
"It is a beautiful country with amazing people, willing to connect and build something together. I  encourage everyone to learn about this experience".

"I had never been to a place like La Dalia before, but you can tell how much of a difference the Foundation is making. It's fantastic to see students so interested in their work and learning. I hope this desire to learn only gets stronger as the school and infrastructure grows".

National Congress Highlights the Importance of Technology for Learning


On September 29th, the National Congress of Educational Technology took place at the National University of Nicaragua. This event was organized by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the Seeds for Progress Foundation. The event demonstrated the importance of integrating educational technology into the school curriculum of young students.

The Importance of Gender Equality in our Work
 

SFP participated in the workshop: "Gender & Corporate Social Responsibility", organized by the European Union and Ayuda en Acción Foundation.

We rediscovered the importance of including gender equality in our work, specially in the schools of the coffee communities in Nicaragua. 
Seeds for Progress' facilitators shared their work with the local producers of coffee communities who are part of Mercon's LIFT Program, which emphasizes productivity and the environment.
 
The producers showed a lot of interest in how technology can improve the quality of education, and motivate both the faculty and the students.

Twenty-one colleagues participated in a one day volunteer experience at Buenos Aires School in Jinotega. 

It was a great experience in which volunteers and students enjoyed different activities such as reading, doing plays and puppet shows. The volunteers also helped evaluate the reading skills of the students. 


Meet Maybeth, a student from
Las Marias School in Jinotega.




"It is very important to learn how to take care of the environment"
Maybeth is a 4th grader from Las Marias School in Jinotega. She is only be 8 years old, but she’s very aware of the importance of protecting the environment and not polluting the planet: "If we do not take care of the environment, then the water we drink will be contaminated".
 
Her favorite subject is natural science, since she learns more about nature and even the solar system, with the help of the XO computers.  She also enjoys learning about geography and exploring the computer during her free time.
 
Although Maybeth is not sure what she wants to study in the future, she understands the importance of getting good grades and being a good student. At this moment, all Maybeth knows is that whatever she pursues, it will  be "something related with nature, and it will make me very happy".
