At Escuela Ceiba, we believe that all children should have access to a high-quality education. One that discovers their strengths, expands their minds, and helps them flourish as happy, healthy beings.
Now that Escuela Ceiba has finished its first school year and we have planted the seed of change within our collective of families, we wish to keep growing and branching out.
This is why we are asking for your help. By supporting Escuela Ceiba's scholarship program, you will help us to bring a creative, personalized, bilingual education to underprivileged children in León, Nicaragua.
WHY ESCUELA CEIBA?
Over a year ago, a group of parents joined together to form an educational collective, with the intention of starting a school and offering León a new option for preschool and primary school education. Our goal has been to plant a seed of change in our community. To start small and grow an idea. An idea for a school in which creativity is celebrated, independence is encouraged, and asking questions is required. One where each child is treated with respect, and is listened to. A school where coloring within the lines is not required, but an open mind is.
Next year, Escuela Ceiba is moving into a larger space, where we can settle in and put down roots. We are offering a multi-grade preschool and first grade, with the goal of opening an additional grade each year. We are also expanding our bilingual program.
Escuela Ceiba’s Scholarship Fund aims to raise $12,000 to be able to offer 6 full scholarships for an entire year. Your contribution to this fund would cover the cost of tuition, materials and transportation, and most importantly, it will give these children an opportunity to grow - to learn another language, develop their creativity, and question and explore their world.
Education is the seed, and with your help, more children will be able to receive the high-quality education that all children deserve.
Won't you join us in planting this seed?
