Mission

Opportunity Tree’s mission is to help children and youth in Central America improve their lives through education. We currently work with under-resourced students in rural communities of Nicaragua and Guatemala.

What We're About

Our Matagalpa Scholarship Program supports students in elementary through technical school/university levels from rural areas who share a passionate desire to stay in school and a high level of motivation to continue learning despite a variety of obstacles. Our program parnter is Accion Medica Cristiana, based in Managua. Our Library Enrichment Project in the San Juan del Sur region creates in-school libraries and supports classroom enrichment activities at rural elementary schools. In 2021, we added a new program to support young rural adults who want to attend classes on Saturdays to earn their high school diplomas. Our program partner is Hester J. Hodgdon Libraries for All, based in Loveland, USA, run by Nicaraguan staff in SJDS.
