The Islington Managua Friendship Association - Educating kids in Nicaragua.

The simple aim of the Islington Managua Friendship Association
is to give financial and friendly support to a small school for nursery
and primary age children in one of the poorest parts of the Nicaraguan
capital, Managua.
Together with the parents we built the school in
1990, since when more than £75,000 has been raised in the UK and sent
across to help the community provide an education, in a safe
environment, for its children.
Relatively small amounts of money (from a British
point of view) go a long way in Managua. Around £90, for example, pays a
teacher for a month. Most of our funds come from "Sponsor a Teacher" standing orders, but pub quizzes and one-off fundraisers bring more money in and help spread the word to new supporters.
Thanks to our administration costs being met by the Trustees, we can guarantee that every penny raised will go to the school. How many other organisations can make that claim? Please give what you can.
