This Friday the first batch of students graduated School Foundation Inside, the Guatemalan singer Ricardo Arjona, in the village Ixcanal in San Agustín Acasaguastlán, El Progreso
Arjona seeks to involve various sectors in the construction and maintenance of more centers specializing in music and sports in rural areas of the country.
Poverty and the dirt road leading to the village contrasts with the modernity of the school, which is named after the singer's mother, Naomi Morales de Arjona, who died on December 4, 2013.
Arjona paid for the project by $ 1 million -Q7.8 million- and refused assistance from any institution, since the idea of the work is that more people are added to improve the education of children, so that always makes the call to work in unity.
Choosing the Ixcanal village to build the first of 20 schools in the Inside Foundation was not random, because in that place the artist's parents, who worked together for the ministry of Education met.
The school Nohemí Arjona Morales is in a poor village of San Agustín Acasaguastlán. The building was constructed in an area of 35 thousand square meters, at a cost of $ 1 million, a Q7.8 million.
It has eight classrooms to accommodate 200 students, library and computer center and equipped.
Has a studio with musical instruments, and a sports court.
In the morning works with pre-school and primary education, while in the evenings taught music lessons, singing and sports.
Ixcanal part of the Dry Corridor, which often is news, of poverty and hunger suffered seasonal residents throughout the year.
Last April the works for the construction of the second school of Inside Foundation, which will work in the village of El Porvenir, San Juan Alotenango Sacatepequez, 95 kilometers from the capital began.
Unlike the first, which was built by Arjona, the new will be called Monge Enrique Castillo, founder of Pepsi Guatemala, now CBC, company funding the construction of the work.
