Elementary School

Our vision is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for 380 primary school students. This is a school with low socioeconomic status but strong flexibility. We are committed to funding and establishing a safe haven by updating the school’s media center. The updated center will become an oasis of contact, support and peace, from which every child can obtain important information.
Challenges to primary schools:
BLACKWOOD’s smallest school is often forgotten and faces serious adversity. The main challenges they face include lack of funds, increased enrollment and community plights that exacerbate the cycle of poverty. The elementary school is a racially diverse school with different faculty and support staff. A community with a low socioeconomic status. 94% of students are financially disadvantaged and are eligible for free and reduced lunches. The crime rate in the area is 81% higher than the national average. Many students have experienced house breakdowns, absence of parents, food insecurity, lack of access to regular medical care, language barriers and gang violence.
We will replace old furniture, refurbish shelves, remodel floors and replace window glass. Most of the construction will take place during the weekend of September 8-9. The total refurbishment is just over US$10,000, and we are doing our best to obtain the required equipment through direct donations, in-kind donations, and fundraising activities and sales.
We also started to connect with schools by volunteering for Career Days, and plan to create events such as "Days of Love".
Potential impact of your support:
Imagine if we give this school better tools to provide them with a safe travel space in distress, we will have an impact on these students? What if we cultivate a culture that can support their dreams and love to read? What if we continue to authorize teachers to represent these children? Supporting schools has a multiplier effect-a school affects hundreds of students, and every child who receives important help can inspire countless others. We are happy to give back to this chain reaction by default. Raise these children with us, and break the restriction cycle of these children by hanging their environment.
