Each month we spotlight a local nonprofit that's in need of help. It's a way to connect our listeners with charities that make an impact.

Get Involved spotlight: Project Schoolhouse

Project Schoolhouse

From Project Schoolhouse, this month's spotlight nonprofit:

With an emphasis on community building and local volunteer participation, Project Schoolhouse partners with Nicaraguan communities to build new schools, provide clean water, improve sanitation, and help students continue their education. We believe that every child has a right to a good education, that every community has a right to clean water in their homes, and that schools can be a foundation for a stronger, more vital, and sustainable future for the whole community.

We Do 3 Things 
Project Schoolhouse partners with communities to build water systems, schools, and sanitation solutions.

We Do Them Well
The typical community is rural, lacks clean water and electricity, and lives far from a traversable road. Our in-country team has the patience and expertise necessary to solve the logistical challenges inherent in working in some of the most remote communities in Nicaragua.

We Stay Focused
Responding strictly to voiced needs, we work with communities that have identified both the problems they want to solve and the solutions to fix them. Our purpose is to facilitate projects that have real grassroots support and local buy-in that result in sustainable progress.
