Report by Gill Holmes from the Los Quinchos project on Managua’s La Chureca dump

Thursday, 11 March, 2010

The most noticeable thing about La Chureca on this visit is that the Spanish project has finally started and was much in evidence from sign boards that have been planted here and there, building work, presumably of the recycling plant that will provide people with employment, and most impressive of all, huge earthmoving equipment ponderously slicing away at the mountains of rubbish and taking it elsewhere.

El Viejo Recreation Centre Management

Friday, 1 May, 2009

Only recently has the Santa Rosa Fund money been used by the Sisters to support the El Viejo Recreation Centre, so it was appropriate that we should make a visit there in November last year to meet William Vargas Díaz (pictured), director of the Centre. The Recreation Centre, right in the middle of the town of El Viejo, is heavily used by the local youth. Its major uses for the youths consist of its sports facilities and organisations, but under the auspices of the Sisters it also runs workshops and programmes in leadership training, sexual health, relationships, responsibilities and a range of other themes. William oversees and coordinates the courses and programmes, as well as the sports, and also arranges visits between the members and users of the El Viejo Recreation Centre and users of other youth centres in the Cosigüina Peninsula such as the Cosigüina Youth Centre which is also part-funded by the Santa Rosa Fund.

Coordinator of the Cosigüina Youth Centre, 2008

Friday, 24 April, 2009

The work of the coordinator of the Cosigüina Youth Centre has been maintained thanks to the support of the Santa Rosa Fund. From January to May Carla Betanco held this post, but due to her pregnancy she had to leave the responsibility of this post. After discussions amongst the group of youths, Diana Sánchez assumed responsibility as coordinator from the beginning of June. Since she began work as the Youth Centre coordinator, things have been very active and Diana has organised several activities with the youths. Thus far she is managing the centre well, looking to hire it out to other institutions for workshops, offering a photocopying service, and hiring out rooms to tourists who visit the volcano.

3 Videos of La Chureca

Friday, 24 April, 2009

Visitors to the website who wish to gain an idea of how life survives on Managua’s main dump may wish to follow the three links to videos given below. One of them is 9 minutes long, but the other two are just 3 or 4 minutes long. The group which made the videos is not in any way associated with the Santa Rosa Fund, but their videos show the Los Quinchos project which is supported by the Fund (through Wales NSC) and several of the kids who benefit from that project.
