Sustainability / School for San Miguel Los Lotus

Nina’s first school project, it began in 1993 in an old, windowless building and during weekends was slowly cleaned up and converted into a school by the locals and Nina. The school turned over to the government in about 2000 and is now totally independent. Literacy rate was about 10% when Nina started—it is now about 90%. Today the school hosts about 120 children preschool – 6th grade.
