For my birthday this year, I am asking for donations to support a young student I met while in Nicaragua. Over the holidays this year, BPP is looking to sponser 70 children, and I'm looking to take Edriel off of their hands :)
Last year I spent a few weeks volunteering at Barrio la Planta Nicaragua. Barrio la Planta is a school for electives only. The kids go to regular schooling until noon, and then at 1pm they head over to BPP and learn English, arts, dance, how to play instruments, play sports, etc. I absolutely loved my time at this school and I really hope I can return in the future. When I was volunteering, I met a child named Edriel. Not only is he amazing in his dance classes, but he was also working to improve his English. Edriel was a child who was so unapollogetically himself. Never have I met a young man before Edriel who was not afraid to dance in front of the other kids at school. Edriel left an impact on me, and I believe that he can achieve anything, as long as he stays in school. Edriel aspires to be a doctor and I want to help in any way to support his education. So for my birthday, if you would consider donating even $5, I will be donating the full amount to BPP to support Edriel. $1000 will cover a whole year of Edriels schooling, the extra $25 is the cost of Go Fund Me. Thank you all so much in advance for helping me support Edriel <3
Here is a link where Edriel introduces himself, and a little bit about BPP.
