The district partnership Ottakring - Barrio Villa Austria exists since 1988. The focus of the more than 25-year collaboration to support the population is in Barrio Villa Austria in Managua. For some years the main focus of the committee is to improve the situation in the Colegio Ottakring, a training center for around 850 children aged 3-15 years, which is headed by Berna Lila Sanchez Lopez. In recent years, a school library was built, the school building was expanded and the school band was equipped with musical instruments. Currently the installation of a school kitchen and a food warehouse and the renovation of the sanitary facilities are planned.
The photovoltaic and energy efficiency project for the Colegio Ottakring aims to be forward-looking and be a pioneer for the use of renewable energies in schools in Nicaragua.
