Not Just Loans

People Helping People is not just about loans. We're about improving the economic and social development of the communities where we work.

In January we saw a need in one of our communities. The school in Susuma, Matagalpa was in desperate need of books and supplies.  We spoke with the school director, Ana, who shared with us her struggles to build an engaging learning environment for the kids.

This past month PHPG was able to help the school in Susuma. Thanks to a generous donation from Lectorum Publishing, a dedicated volunteer, Alex Ursino, and many of his friends and colleagues the school received 216 Spanish language books.

Before the school did not have any story books or a library for its 86 students. A whole new world of possibilities has opened up to the children at the school!
