A colleague of mine introduced me to a wonderful organization called the ISWA Scholarship Program. The concept is for the program to change and inspire the minds of the youths in Nicaragua affected by informally working in trash dumps. Because of the scholarships, these children are getting an educations they otherwise would not.
I was evolved in a fundraiser given by Olga Sacasa; She raised enough money to cover tutoring and classes for 14 children for a whole year! Below is a drawing one of the kids did as a thank you and to the side are children from the program. Very humbling!
