Los Lagos Elementary School, Liberia, Guanacaste

 

The Project

Help a dedicated group of parents to improve Los Lagos, a poor school built by the parents for their 50 children. We did many things to improve school standards, including bringing electricity over a bridge, and giving the school lights, electric outlets and a ceiling fan to cool the classroom.

Amazing Children and Their Families

The roadside town of Los Lagos is a shanty town of homes with a very tight knit and organized community of parents caring for their children. Los Lagos Elementary School was built five years ago by a small community of Nicaraguan immigrants. Over the five years it has grown substantially, and now finds itself with almost fifty students. The small school consists of three classrooms made out of recycled aluminum paneling with dirt floors.

Result

Band of Brothers added electricity, a total of eight overhead lights, and three fans to the three classrooms. Los Lagos will no longer have to cancel classes when it is cloudy, which had been a daily occurrence during the rainy season. Equally important, each classroom has its own electrical outlet which can now be used for floor fans to help fight the heat in what is said to be Costa Rica's hottest region.
