To recognize the teacher volunteers that are an integral part of the Basic Education for Adults program, we sponsor a trip - once a year - where the educators get to share and enjoy the day.
 
This year, we organized a trip to the Pochomil beach where we enjoyed a peaceful outing. This served as encouragement to continue with our educational work for the development of the community.

Over the last few years, CECIM has received various friends that came to help with the daily task to better our communiy. But this year culminates the labor of a dear friend who has worked here for four years. She was with us through countless training classes, journeys with the children of CECIM, the foundation of the House of Peace, projects with Maura Clarke, she supported new initiatives through her leadership and many more things we don't have room to write down. For this, we are thankful, grateful, and will always remember you, Gaby Begusth.
 
Today, we embark on a new journey, but we take with us the lessons that Gaby taught us. Though Gaby, we hope you remember that we are always here with open arms of love, hope and happiness!

On the occassion of the anniversary celebration of the beginning of the National crusade of Literacy, on the 23rd of March, we celebrated the first assembly where we remembered how signficiant this campaign was for Nicaraguans. In fact, today illiteracy is about 12% nationally, signficantly down from the 50% it was in 1980.
 
At CECIM, we designated the year 2009 as the year of Education, remembering that our educational work in this municipality lowered the illiteracy rate from 11% to less than 4%.  In fact, this accomplishment was praised by the Ministry of Education when it declared Ciudad Sandino literate.  
 
This school year, we suceeded in matriculting 1,843 students in three levels, that are attended to by 170 voluntary teachers, 30 promoters, and 8 coordinators. Our goal is to reach the highest level of retention and this is what we passioinately work to accomplish.
