Soccer is very popular in Nicaragua, but there are no soccer fields in the three villages of Jiquilillo, Los Zorro, and Padre Ramos. These three villages neighbor each other on the coast of Nicaragua. During the summer of 2015, we traveled to the newly built Popup Technology School that serves these three villages and built soccer and basetball goals, as well as donated 11 balls. The students there had never played basketball, so we also introduced them to the sport. Thanks to Drs. Jennifer and Bob McNeill and their sons David, John, and Nate McNeill from Dallas, TX for bringing 6 basketballs to the kids.
