Yachaikury Prepares for a Facelift

Posted in

You may remember the great news about Yachaikury—the ACT-sponsored ethnoeducation school of the Inga people—from the spring, when the Colombian government announced it would become the country’s first private indigenous school transformed into a public institution. Just last week, we received another incredible update: the government may fund the school’s master architectural plan! By improving dormitories, classrooms and bathrooms, Yachaikury will become an even better place for children to live and learn. Furthermore, additional support from the governments means that Yachaikury may soon be able to function independently of ACT. Creating effective, self-governing institutions is a goal of every nonprofit. To learn more about Yachaikury or see the school’s curriculum guide, please contact us.
