Nicaragua may be facing a longer than expected quarantine.

 

Dear Reader,

People around the world are emerging from lockdown.

But Nicaragua may be facing a longer than expected quarantine.

Still...

We'd like you to know that we're pushing on.

One of the main goals at FunLimon is to be able to welcome our students, teachers, and staff back to their classrooms. 

And although we don't have a return date yet, we've come up with new ways to keep our students engaged by...

  • Preparing school packet - 86 families have already picked up theirs. The packets include activities for the 3 main areas of our youth program: English, PC Literacy, and Life Skills.
  • Providing follow-up sessions over the phone - The 86 families have already arranged their sessions. Unfortunately, 3 families have not been able to respond to our efforts due to problems with phone service.

But that's not all we've done...

For 4 weeks, our educators attended online seminars and workshops to prepare them to help our students learn from home.

During that time, they were exposed to many different strategies used around the world. They also had the opportunity to become very familiar with the software needed to work remotely.

But our educators didn't stop there.

They continued to step up in other ways. For example...

Our students used to attend Taekwondo classes on a regular basis.

In quarantine, they couldn't do that. So our Taekwondo instructor shifted her attention to...

  • Developing modules on teaching the importance of hand washing and personal hygiene.
  • Creating short at-home video workouts.
  • Educating students on the prevention of mosquito-borne diseases (very important now that the rainy season started).

And much, much more.

Please know that we are doing our best to provide you with the most up-to-date and accurate information possible about developments here at FunLimon.

We will continue to keep you updated. 

We'll also keep you informed of the steps you can take to help as we make the adjustments necessary to move forward.

As a community, we remain resilient. 

And we'd just like to say...

Thank you from all of us.
