Social Responsibility: Note from the Founders
The school was founded by two Nicaraguan sisters with decades of teaching experience. We are socially conscious Nicaraguans who are excited about teaching Spanish as a second language, and sharing our culture and hospitality with international visitors. We hope that our relationships with students are mutally productive and there can be equal exchange of knowledge and expertise.
We are a small family business. We treat both our employees and our client fairly and with respect. We believe that running our business in an ethical manner is an essential part of our contribution towards improving the Nicaraguan community. It is our business project will help to bring in foreign capital and generate job opportunities for local Nicaraguans. We estimate that in addition to language teachers, there may be increased employment for taxi drivers, "cocheros" (horse cart drivers), dance instructors and restaurateurs.
