Although we are not a fully approved 501c3 at this time, Pinol Guitars has started contributing to the Nicaraguan youth by donating 25% of proceeds from every custom handmade guitar and ukulele sold as well as receiving private donations.
The President/Founder of Pinol Guitars arrived in the USA in 1987 from Nicaragua after he had to flee the civil war that killed 50,000 people and injured more than 20,000 with his Family. The war left the country with a higher percentage of poverty, illiteracy and a sense of hopelessness.
Abuela's House is the result of the President's grandmother's warmhearted war against hunger in Nicaragua while he was in the USA. Although Abuela's House mission is to empower Nicaraguan youth through music, the results are similar.
Building self-esteem, discipline and leadership skills only helps these kids have a better chance to beat the odds of poverty and illiteracy in Nicaragua, as a result the name of the Non-Profit Organization is in honor of the President's grandmother " Leticia Jerez " that passed in 1997.
Our goal is to have a center where kids from lower income can learn how to play a musical instrument & other special skills in order to build self-esteem, discipline and leadership skills that will empower them with skills for their future.
Our Non-Profit Organization.
