AllPeopleBeHappy foundation has been a longtime supporter of Project Alianza, working in Nicaragua and El Salvador. In recent years, the Foundation has been making contributions to help operate their flagship Community Allies Program (CAP), a program that recruits local women as community educators in poorer quality schools, and trains them on a broad range of interventions standards (e.g., WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene), Teach-at-the-Right-Level). During the Pandemic and resulting school closures, the APBH funds were allocated for personal protective equipment/ materials to safely interact with students, materials for families and children who were affected by Hurricanes Eta and Iota last year, and supplies (books. school supplies, interactive workbooks) for their libraries. Project Alianza has been approved by the Ministry of Education to resume the Community Allies Program (CAP) in-person for 2022 in 54 communities in Nicaragua.
