At Hotel con Corazón we have a children’s reading room and we support the Bibliobus. Occasionally we (co-)finance specific renovations together with the local community, to make the school a more attractive and safer learning environment.
At the hotel we have furnished a children’s reading room in close cooperation with Peudo Leer (“I Can Read!”). The room opens six days a week and welcomes children of all ages. Every Wednesday we organize special reading activities together with Fútbol Sin Fronteras (“Soccer Without Borders”).
The Bibliobus is a private nonprofit initiative. The bus travels all over Nicaragua and stops at our two schools in Las Lagunas once a month. Children can borrow books to take home. Read more about the Bibliobus.
On an incidental basis we invest in maintenance and upgrading of school facilities. As a matter of principle, these activities take place on request and with active involvement of the parents and the school. We don’t just want to hand out money, we want to help the community to take responsibility and build their own future.
Projects supported to date include: painting the two school buildings in Las Lagunas; construction of a small playground financed by CuCu Foundation and Brian and Nancy Davis; and security measures such as installing locks and doors.
