AFTER WITNESSING THE STRUGGLE OF NICARAGUA’S EDUCATION SYSTEM, WE SOUGHT AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Though schooling in Nicaragua is free, we learned that nearly half of these kids would not finish primary school simply because they could not afford the books, supplies, etc. they required.
WE KNEW WE COULDN’T FIX THIS ENTIRE PROBLEM OURSELVES,
but we could give others the chance to help, which is the purpose of Lokono: for every backpack sold, we will donate a backpack full of school supplies to a student in need.
