Pequeno Benjamin - Tipitapa

Colegio El Pequeño Benjamin (Pi-cane-yo Ben-ha-min: Little Benjamin)

 

Director: Alexandra Mendoza
Faculty and Staff: 23
Enrollment: 520
Pequeño Benjamin is one of HI's longest running projects-probably because we had the good sense to give its operation over to some very faithful and remarkable Nicaraguans. Located in Tipitapa and founded in 1999, the school enrolls 520 students from Preschool to Secondary. The Director, Alexandra Mendoza, leads a staff of 23 teachers and support personnel. 2014 marks the first graduating high school class; 12 students received their diplomas. Only about 7% of Nicaraguans have graduated High School, so a diploma puts a young person in a very good position to escape poverty. To allow for continued expansion, the first of several planned second story classrooms has been added.
