About us

The Fundación Aprender (Learning Foundation) is a non-profit organization committed to providing educational opportunities for the youth of Las Salinas de Nahualapa, Tola, in rural Nicaragua on the mid-Pacific coast. The town of Las Salinas lies in close proximity to the beaches of Popoya and Guasacate, some of the best surfing beaches in the country.

The foundation´s approach is twofold: helping kids attend school and providing educational opportunities outside of school.

In order to help kids attend school, Aprender supplies the necessary items (uniforms, shoes, and school supplies) for the children whose families cannot afford these items. Additionally, Aprender counsels families on the importance of their children's education.

In order to provide educational opportunities outside of school, Aprender opened the region's only library: La Biblioteca Los Tres Ernestos

Through the library, Aprender also runs tutoring programs and various educational and art workshops that range from basic literacy and math to theater, from painting to Tae Kwon Do, from film projects to recycling paper, sports programs ... and more.

Aprender meets regularly with parents and teachers to stay updated on each student's learning progress: helping identify which student's might benefit from tutoring sessions or other types of assistance.
