A School that is part of ACECEN

Divino Salvador is located in Ciudad Sandino, a very poor community of Managua, Nicaragua. Born out of a church ministry, this school has been through a lot and almost closed its doors at one time.  Darío Talavera, the principal at that time, helped turn things around and grew the school’s enrolment by adding enough grades to offer full primary school.  This school is now part of ACECEN and is learning how to integrate a Christian worldview. Members of the church are also involved, talking with the students about God on a weekly basis.

Divino Salvador means "Divine Saviour" in Spanish and exists to share our divine Saviour with the surrounding community!  Currently, there are 190 students enrolled from Primary through to Grade 6.  The school used to provide High School, but with the changing of leadership, a decision was made to close the school due to a difference in vision.

Due to an increase in growth, Divino Salvador - with the assitance of HANDS Teams - built three classrooms on its second storey.  They celebrated with a dedication service for this new addition in the Fall of 2012. The project involved removing the roof from their school building, pouring a reinforced concrete floor, adding the three classrooms, and reinstalling the original roof.  One classroom is used for a computer lab, another for vocational use and the third for regular classroom use.

The school continues to remember the HANDS teams and the relationships the team developed with Dario, the school's principal, as well as the ladies in the kitchen, a 13 year-old student who spoke perfect English, the community, and the local workers.
