For over 25 years now, SIGA has been supporting the San Francisco School in Santa Teresa, Nicaragua. Together with other supporters, we make sure that approximately 300 children receive education, food and school supplies.
History of the San Francisco School
25 years ago, Yamilet Fonseca Telléz, a young woman from the village of Santa Teresa, and Sister Gabriela Schwizer came into contact with numerous “problem” children who had to leave the state school in their first year. The two women founded a school for children with learning difficulties. By using game-type activities, they helped the children build up their self-esteem so that gradually the kids were able to manage their school tasks.
Help for the poorest
Situation in Nicaragua
Although the economic situation in Nicaragua has improved over the past ten years, it still remains one of the poorest countries in South America. For children in need, education and the chance it offers to lead a better life is not something they can take for granted.
The Christmas Present
Instead of giving a Christmas present to our customers and partners, SIGA makes a donation to the school every year.
If you would like to contribute to creating better living conditions for Santa Teresa’s school children, please make a donation to the Partnerschaft mit Santa Teresa, Nicaragua.
