Community Development in León

Project Minnesota/León has accompanied the people of León in community initiatives and cooperative ventures since it began. Early efforts included classroom construction, equipment donation, a maternal/child nutrition program, latrine construction support, and community health center support. 

Human development is a high priority for PML. In 2014, experienced development practitioner Rosa Lira Ulloa was hired full-time to focus on the semirural San Carlos community about seven kilometers from León.

PML's current development work also includes Xuchialt Art School (Taller Artístico Xuchialt) for youth and Gotitas de Esperanza, a preschool.
