In the winter of 2015 I visited Nicaragua for the first time and my heart was captivated by Ometepe Island. The people are poor but generous of spirit and very welcoming. I returned the following winter to renew relationships and establish the foundations of what was to become my future passion, to provide improved life opportunities for the very poor communities here. Having spent 40 years in the UK education system I know how important it is to maximise children and young people’s educational opportunities.

From 2017 I have been fundraising with friends, family and people I have met to provide uniforms to enable children to attend school, educational materials and equipment for pupils and teachers, technology, musical and sports equipment for the schools. We also run regular fundraising events ( see events page). And as a creative person I sell my works of art and embroidery to raise funds ( see donations page). Carolyn Gibbs Ed D.
