A History of Giving:
The Foundation was establish in 2000 by A. Jean Brugger and Chris R.A. Berry, the owner of the Piedras y Olas Hotel. The pair recognized the capacity for brilliance in Nicaragua’s youth, much of it unrealized in a region of limited means. Since it inception, the A. Jean Brugger Foundation has truly transformed the San Juan del Sur community, helping countless underprivileged locals thrive.
The Jean Brugger Foundation is actively seeking monetary donations and sponsorships of educational supplies for Nicaraguan children in need. Among the Foundation’s projects:
- School Uniform Project: School uniforms are mandatory in Nicaragua schools, but many impoverished families have trouble paying for them. For $30 US donation, the Foundation will provide a Nicaraguan child with a school uniform, made locally by women in the San Juan del Sur community. Donors can also sponsor an entire school for $1350.
- Scholarship Fund: The Foundations offers the opportunity to sponsor a Nicaraguan schoolchild by providing $30 US a month for tuition, or $75-200 US a month to sponsor a university student. Sponsors are invited to correspond with their child, or even meet him or her on a trip to Nicaragua.
- Vocational Training: Donating your time san be just as beneficial as donating money. The Foundation encourages those experienced in ecology, hospitality, construction, business, tourism, or any other valuable arena to volunteer in Nicaragua by providing education and skill-building.
