Martha Kelly begins teaching placement in Puerto Morazan

BLINC volunteer Martha Kelly has taken her experience of working in the Clifton Montessori pre-school to Nicaragua. Martha first went to Mexico for several months to improve her Spanish before taking up a placement with BLINC in the pre-schools in Puerto Morazan in early April. Martha is hopeful her sister will also be able to join her.

Picture books donated to children of Puerto Morazan

Pupils at a school in Bristol raised over £60 GBP after hearing about their counterparts not having many books. BLINC has arranged the purchase and handing over of these Childrens Stories from Nicaragua. In each book is written “A gift from the children of Sefton Park primary school in Bristol, Puerto Morazan’s twin town in England”.
