La Chispa Library Celebrates 20th Anniversary and subsequently suspends operations.

In May, Planting Hope’s La Chispa Library celebrated it’s 20th Anniversary as a fixture for a generation of children and youth in the Walter Mendoza neighborhood of Matagalpga. Unfortunately, a day later we had to suspend our work and close the library, based on an indication from the Nicaraguan government that they had cancelled our legal status in Nicaragua. Our staff, community, board of directors and students are heartbroken by this news. We are grateful for the 20 years that we were able to spend together.
