The Future of Education at La Vida Nicaragua

The Future of Education at La Vida Nicaragua

Our Future Site

With the recent purchase of three acres strategically centered next to several schools, LA VIDA Education’s current potential for impact is unparalleled. We have the opportunity to radically change the way that youth participate in education. With the new land purchase, we are in the process of building facilities that will be used as a model for the rest of Nicaragua – a center which will be the educational hub for an entire region of the country.
