850 Needy Children in Diria Receive Backpacks and School Supplies

The new school year in Nicaragua started on Tuesday and Proyecto Laguna has been hard at work getting together all of the school supplies and backpacks for the children.
Proyecto Laguna has distributed 850 backpacks, handmade by our seamstress group. All of our registered children received school supplies including pencils, notebooks, pens, erasers, pencils sharpeners, colored pencils, and more.
It has been great to watch the children walking down the street to school proudly carrying their backpacks.
Thank you to all of you who helped us help these children attend school and have a brighter future.
