Amped for Education

http://ampedforeducation.org

Amped for Education was founded in 2009 with the goal of expanding education in developing countries. We began our work in Nicaragua with the construction of a high school in 2012, and we have continued to support the school's students and their community. Our goal is to fund, construct and open another larger learning center next year that will be able to assist a larger amount of high school students. To support our work in Nicaragua, we lead groups of volunteers to the country and provide a memorable experience working on community projects and exploring the country.
