Prior to PoP’s partnership with Joel, the Las Doncellas school had three provisional classrooms. One is located in a hallway, one is occupying a space that was originally created as a kitchen, and the other is a wooden classroom constructed previously by the community. These conditions were not only extremely unsafe for students, but they did not provide a positive learning environment.
Thanks to your support, PoP and the Las Doncellas community were hard at work to complete construction on a new three-classroom school. The new formal classrooms have allowed the students to learn in a safe environment that can withstand the increased number of students. The official completion of the school was observed with an inauguration ceremony, celebrating the tireless work of the community. The hundreds of students you’re impacting through the Las Doncellas school are so excited to finally have a school that helps them reach their full promise and potential!
