Within one to two weeks the houses in the new community Villa Esperanza are ready and their owners with family can move in. The most work that is left is the building of the concrete front patios that will give a cooling shade during the hot hours of the day. Then of course painting that will start tomorrow (Wednesday).
But already last Friday the new community center was finished! And it´s beautiful. It is big, light, airy and it has fans in the ceiling! All of you who have visited Nicaragua and felt the heat do know how wonderful the wind from a fan can be. It has two big whiteboards and you can easily fit more than 40 people inside. Here we will be able to offer English classes, workshops, events, and so much more!
Now there is a place for the community to gather, develop and solve comun problems that may occur. We hope that the community center will encourage a collaboration and engagement among the citizen and create a union feeling, working together instead of facing difficulties alone. A union is often stronger than one single person. We want to give great thanks to ANF, The American Nicaraguan Foundation who funded the Community Center and to the Fundacion Colmena who build it. Thank you for given this opportunity of development to the people of Jiquillio.
