Carwash benefit Davis kids building schools in Nicaragua

By
From page A9 | May 10, 2013 |

Teachers from Chávez and Willett elementary schools and Emerson Junior High will join forces Saturday for a carwash to raise money for their sister schools in Nicaragua and the nonprofit Seeds of Learning. Cars will be washed from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Davis school district’s parking lot, Fifth and B streets.

The teachers also will collect gently used backpacks, used laptop computers and school supplies to take to Nicaragua.

Davis work groups have been going to Nicaragua for years to help build schools in rural areas of the Central American nation; two groups have trips planned this year. An Indiegogo campaign at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-send-niki-rg-to-nicaragua is raising funds to help two teachers join the work group this summer.

With help from Davis and other communities, Seeds of Learning has built 152 classrooms in 55 communities and has awarded scholarships to more than 1,000 primary, high school and university students.

Seeds of Learning pairs schools in Nicaragua with schools in the United States, currently involving more than 2,000 students and 80 teachers.

For more information, visit http://seedsoflearning.org or call Jenny Decker, one of the co-leaders, at 530-574-0335.
