FoM raised £3,500 towards the costs of the new “Carussel Plan Barrio” preschool in a barrio of Tonala in Puerto Morazan. BLINC donated £1500 from the money raised at this year’s Copa Sandino charity football for Nicaragua event. Previously the children held classes in the open under a tree or shared a small space in the primary school next door. The building will be used by 30 under fours and also by the community.
