25 Aug La Estancita
This community first heard about bottle schools through other teachers who work in the same area. Francisco, who is an active member of the community and part of the Community Development Council, is the one that contacted Hug It Forward about supporting the community with a bottle school.
At the time, the community didn’t have any educational infrastructure and was renting a house from a community member to teach the 51 students they had. Since this community had the support of the Ministry of Education, as well as the Municipality, and already had two teachers with the agreement to add another, we decided it best to support this community with a 3-classroom bottle school.
Population (approximately): 300
