NICARAGUA UPDATE

JULY 24, 2018

Nicaragua's current political climate has resulted in the suspension of English classes for both adults and young learners in León. Classes are expected to resume in the future. Ongoing events occurring since April have severely impacted the country. Read more about Nicaragua's political unrest here or watch the English interview of President Ortega by Bret Baier

During this time of uncertainty Runucate is temporarily shifting focus toward educational programs within the United States. We are researching organizations and programs that will benefit from contributions received from our next marathon fundraiser this November in Myanmar.  

Our hearts go out to students, friends, family and others that have been affected by the turbulent political atmosphere in Nicaragua. Respect for freedom of expression and of assembly in a peaceful manner, according to national and international law, is essential to democratic society.
