A highlight of our recent visit to Nicaragua was meeting with many of the Matagalpa scholarship program students. We met first with university students and a recent, happily employed university graduate in the city of Matagalpa. The university students are thriving and they are deeply committed to overcoming obstacles to completing their studies. For example, to get to the universities located in Matagalpa City, some students travel two hours each direction, on foot and then on buses. We also met with quite a few secondary and primary students, who expressed great appreciation to Opportunity Tree donors far away for their scholarships. They shared their hope that Opportunity Tree scholarships will enable them to pursue their dreams of helping their families, communities, and nation.
