The Impact of Your Gift

You’ve supported the gift of education in a Free The Children school located in Nicaragua’s Carazo Department. Your gift helps Free The Children build schools, school rooms and libraries, and equips them with essential furniture and school supplies.

For children like Gabriela education is precious and, tragically, often elusive. With one week of school supplies, you have given Gabriela a gift that will be cherished across generations. We know that when children are educated, entire communities can break the cycle of poverty—for themselves and for future generations.

Thank you for helping us change the world.
