Education

Since its inception Planting Hope has been dedicated to bringing educational opportunities to those we serve. From the building of La Chispa Library, to the launching of the Mobile Library for Peace education has always been at the heart of Planting Hope.

Planting Hope also has been building preschools in the rural communities around San Ramon since 2002, PH has built preschools in the communities El Chile, Pueblo Viejo, and Laguna Seco. Brigade members on cultural exchanges from Vermont in conjunction with community members constructed these schools. Communities interested in a concrete preschool building submit an application to Planting Hope. Currently have several communities have submitted applications for a building to replace their wood scrap/plastic one and Planting Hope is currently seeking funding for additional projects.
