Help Educate (Nicaragua)

My brother Dave, a former Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua, has helped establish an NGO that can send promising Nicaraguans to universities for pennies on the dollar (about $400/year!). If you have pennies or dollars that you wish to donate, they'd be mighty appreciative. Given the fact that El Presidente Boosh gives less money to Latin America that Hugo Chavez, you'd be doing a patriotic duty as well.

Here's information from their website:

What is Help Educate?
Help Educate is an international development organization built on the idea that education has the power to transform individuals and communities. We work with local Nicaraguan community leaders to identify students with the greatest potential for making a positive impact in their communities. We provide these students with scholarships to leading Nicaraguan universities, where they learn the technical abilities and leadership skills necessary for moving Nicaragua forward.

How can you Help Educate?
Take some time to learn more about our organization by browsing our site. Make sure you visit our photo gallery, student biographies, and maps pages, and check back soon for student blogs and videos. Make a contribution online or by mail. Contact us by email or phone for additional information about how you can Help Educate.
