The public school system is very inadequate due to constant teacher strikes which only enabled the children to attend school roughly 78 out of required 200 days in classroom. Next to a knowledge of Jesus Christ, we believe education is the most important gift we can give our children. And so in the fall of 2012, we opened our bilingual school for preschool through 12th grades in Puerto Cortes.
The kids are now thriving at the school learning all the core materials as well as actively learning English. Three to four years ago, most of the kids could barely speak any English, if at all. Now, all the kids are proficiently speaking English! Thanks to some generous donations from Microsoft, the school has a state-of-the-art computer lab where they are learning valuable computer skills.
Heart to Heart oversees all aspects of the school from the building to maintenance to the coordinating all the teachers/volunteers as well as the year-to-year curriculum for the kids. We are always looking for volunteers to come down for a while. If you do, you will probably have one of the biggest learning experiences of your life! For more information, please contact us.
