The children were asked to draw a picture of what they wanted to be. These were given to a painter who made a mural on their school.
Blue and White signify official school colors matching the Nica flag.
These kids were gathered waiting for the gates to open for school.
This looks crude. Poles and plastic wrap for a house. But to experience the joy of the people that live here, you'd never believe they think anything other than this is their home.

This is the new building for the school. I believe they are able to accommodate up to grade 6 here.
Pure joy from these kids. If you're not careful, they'll steal your heart...
