Unbelievable! The opening of the new school, Plan Escalon-Academia sin Límites, in the community of Samarguala, La Jigua Copan was filled with hugs, smiles, tears and butterflies (literally, they were everywhere you looked). For the first time in history, the children in this community have their own 2-classroom school with desks and blackboards.
This school represents more than an opportunity to learn, it is the first chance these children have to dream of a promising future. The school will also provide classes for adults. Most importantly, this school represents HOPE for future generations in this community.
Operating under the auspices of Plan Escalon / Tree of Life, the children will receive a full day of education and a daily meal (for some the only guaranteed meal they will ever have). They will have a safe and calm place to learn, to grow, to dream and to mature and become contributing members of their community who will help change the nation.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported this amazing project. YOU have touched a life, created an opportunity for these children, and created an environment where hopes and dreams can become a reality.
