After school club PDF Print E-mail
NECAT has as it´s largest contribution to education in Nicaragua an education centre devoted to supporting the education of children from the barrios of Sutiaba, Laborio and Zaragoza. The centre is open every day and 30 children selected as being from poor families come along to attend the after school club. We call the club REFORZAMIENTO (or school strengthening) which indicates how the project builds on the education the children receive at school.

In order to support the children as they progress through the Nicaraguan education system we offer them qualified teacher who use affectivity to demonstrate to the children that they are valued for themselves as individuals.


The project offers the children not only support with their school homework but also a very wide range of activities such as music, English classes given by overseas volunteers, cultural activities involving local folklore traditions and educational visits both locally and further afield.

Since 2010 is the 400th anniversary of the relocation of the city of León from León Viejo to the current site adjacent to the indigenous neighbourhood of Sutiava the children are investigating the history of the city and have visited the ruins at the old site to obtain a first hand experience.
