Cosigüina Youth Centre


In 2004, the Sisters of the Mercedarias Misioneras de Berriz asked the Santa Rosa Fund if we could help them to equip a youth centre being built at that time in the village of Cosigüina. Apart from a primary school, the village had nothing to interest or involve teenagers and young adults who, if they continued their education after primary level, have to travel for two hours to get to the town of El Viejo or the city of Chinandega. Upon return to Cosigüina, they had nothing to help them with their studies or their enjoyment.

Having identified the need for some kind of centre in which the local youth of the village could involve themselves, an organisation called Amigos de Holanda built the centre with funding provided by the Sisters. In 2005 one of our trustees was able to visit the centre with the nuns just after the building had been completed. Since that time the Santa Rosa Fund has continued to provide small amounts of funding for the purchase of materials or equipment for the centre. The nuns occasionally provide us with reports about the work of the centre compiled by users of the centre. Three of those reports are included here.
