Education

Children that receive primary education are less likely to live in poverty. At Agros, our approach is to provide access to primary and secondary school for the children in Agros villages but that also benefits the children in surrounding areas.  This work started in Nicaragua, where we partnered with buildOn, a nonprofit that provides rural communities across the globe in developing countries access to education, and the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education, add schools to three existing villages once they became large enough to support a dedicated school. Based on the success of this pilot program, the positive partnerships and generosity of our donors, we will be adding three more schools to villages in Nicaragua and two more in Agros villages in Honduras this fiscal year.
