Ricardo Arjona is proud to announce that there's a new school in town! "Great day for Guate. It has another school," the singer expressed on Twitter after a fun-filled day in his homeland earlier this week. 

After Arjona, along with his Adentro Foundation, launched the first school in GuatemalaEscuela Adentro Nohemí Morales de Arjona, back in 2014, the singer and the organization have inaugurated a second school. The new institute in the Central American country is called Enrique Castillo Monje School. "The schools aren't 'fixed' by painting them," said Arjona during his speech at the ceremony Wednesday, according to Billboard. "Schools are fixed by making them and worrying about the pedagogic system."

In his speech, the "Porque Es Tan Cruel El Amor" singer sent a few words to Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales. "Those who ask, should wait and those who give, should have the priority to build more schools," he said to the audience. According to a post on Twitter, Arjona also asked the president to facilitate support to businesses that want to help build more schools in the country. 

Following the inaugural event, Arjona shared his thoughts, experience and many photos on Twitter. "Adentro Foundation inaugurates the second school, populating the country of schools that benefit children," he said. "We can't ask nothing of the future if we don't educate our people in the present," he also expressed. 

The foundation also celebrated the big day and great news by sharing the following message on social media: "We had an extraordinary inauguration, with important speeches and wonderful emotions. Truly unforgettable. The instruments and books are in place, it's time to learn!"
