Since 2011, Partners for Resilience (PfR) in Nicaragua has been promoting a safe schools model in the municipalities of Somoto, San Lucas, Las Sabanas and San José de Cusmapa in the department of Madriz. The objective was to help the Ministry of Education (MINED) develop disaster prevention, preparedness and response capacities within the educational community in those places covered by the PfR Program in Nicaragua.
