Are you a medical or dental student or practitioner? Are you interested in volunteering to help the people of the Jalapa Valley? We're organizing a dental and medical health clinic trip to Jalapa, Nicaragua, for June 2016. It's a great opportunity to help people, so please contact us if you're interested in coming along. 

The trip will run from June 17-30. We'll conduct health clinics in three different villages in the Jalapa Valley, as well as have some time for sight-seeing and relaxing.

Jalapa school construction moving along

The construction of the new Sreejana Bilingual School building in Jalapa is moving along quickly. It's exciting to see the roof going up! Our president, Narayan Shrestha, just got a report on the construction, and is very pleased the progress and with our local engineer, Freddy Gonzales, who has been managing the project. Latrines are being built, and a fence to provide security for the students will complete the project.

The school year runs from February through November in Nicaragua. The Sreejana School started on February 8th with over 80 students - more than we had last year. We have five classrooms: Pre-K-K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. The year is starting off well!
