ABN Amro Volunteer Trip

This summer Seeds had the pleasure of hosting ABN Amro bank in a week long trip in our school in Modesto Armijo School in San Juan Río Coco. 

One volunteer said, “We came with the belief that we will give something to them. I left knowing that it was the other way around. They - the kids and the people- gave so much to me.”

CISA Agro Day Trip

This Father’s Day our partners from CISA Agro donated their time and energy on a trip north of Jinotega to volunteer at a festival in Las Colinas school.
Their presence enlivened the community, as they helped with festivities such as face painting, puzzlemaking, wheelbarrow races, and even a singing competition!

Trips like these attest to CISA’s deep investment in education, community, and the growth of children–not just academically, but socially and holistically.

Meet Profe Naza, part of the history of Las Marias School,
a school in Jinotega.



"I love teaching, I have been teaching for more than 16 years. Being a teacher is simply part of who I am."
Nazarena, or Profe Naza, as she is known by her students, is an integral part of the history of Las Marias School in La Arriba Reforma outside of Jinotega. Before the donation of land and funding that made the founding of the school possible, the nearest school was hours away, and 15 year old Nazarena devoted her time to teach youth of her community in a local wooden shack. She gained a reputation for herself in the community and was asked to serve as one of the first teachers of Las Marias when it started out as a two-classroom school. She remains an inspirational and caring figure to the school, which has grown to serve eleven classrooms.

Naza has worked for a total of 16 years as an educator and proudly says that being a teacher is simply part of who she is. She finds that the most rewarding aspect of her job is getting to help form her students to become educated, driven, and well-rounded human beings. She warmly credits the Foundation with supporting not only intellectual, but also emotional, development of the students, which she believes to be central to a complete education.
Thank you for supporting our work!

This summer, Seeds for Progress is hosting two interns from the University of Pennsylvania, who are jointly working on research and marketing projects. 

They both contribute greatly to the team, and are the inaugural interns in what will be a continued partnership with the International Internship Program (IIP) at Penn. Welcome to the team, Eleanor and Julia!
