This fund will fund up to two new teachers at the Las Delicias school in El Salvador for the next five years.

On Thursday, February 8th, CoCoDA, our partner CRC and the Batto family announced the establishment of the Teresa Batto Teacher Fund. The teachers at this school, which has only been funded by the government through elementary, have been offering classes through high school. This fund will increase the number of teachers, decrease the class size and allow a fuller curriculum with the hiring of a math and English teacher.

The Batto family, in honor of Teresa’s deep attachment to Las Delicias, have pledged $9,000 a year for five years and are asking others to match their commitment to fund the second teacher.

If you would like to join them in this five-year commitment, please contact CoCoDA Executive Directot, Jim Mulholland, at:
