Las Torres is one of the poorest barrios in Managua. After the devastating earthquake in 1972 that left over 4000 dead and 300,000 homeless, some residents were forced to evacuate to an area near Lake Managua where they squatted on the empty land.
Over the years, a community developed and was named Las Torres (translated: The Towers) because of the electric transmission towers that run through this community.
The Christian Academy of Las Torres (CALT) serves over 250 children in pre-K to 6th grade. Many children in Nicaragua do not continue their education beyond this point. We are proud that 100% of our 2017 graduates have enrolled in 7th grade classes in one or more of the surrounding schools.
Our long term goal is to increase the size of our building to serve more students, add 7th and 8th grade classes, and build on the English program we implemented in 2018.
The Christian Academy of Las Torres operates on the generosity of donors like you.
Can you please help these students by making a one-time or recurring donation today? A $20 monthly donation will cover the cost of one child for an entire school year. Thanks!
Your contribution will help us meet our goals and to improve the lives of the children enrolled at the Christian Academy of Las Torres.
