ECO SCHOOL PROGRAM
In 2009, Hotel Plaza Colón along with Careli Tours & FundeNic (NGO), came together to carry out for the first time in Nicaragua, the program ECO ESCUELAS. The program consists of providing environmental education in public schools and it is funded by the private sector. At that time this “pilot project”, was successfully executed for two years (2010/2011) in Pedro Joaquin Chamorro School in El Diamante, a small community along the shores of Lake Cocibolca. With the experience acquired during the pilot, the Eco School Program was launched on a national level and by the end of 2013, it was already being executed in 70 public schools.

The backpacks are delivered once a month to the School and are given to children who cannot afford them and that are also enthusiastic about the environment.
