I’ve organized a scholarship program to send a dozen Nicaraguan students to college. You can read about some of them below.
I set it up in collaboration with a charity that called Wisconsin-Nicaragua Partners that has operated in the country for decades. If you want to participate you can do so via their web site:
Or if you want more information please reach out to me directly.
The students are an amazing group of kids who volunteer to help people less fortunate than themselves. I’d like to introduce you to some of their stories.
