Every Child Counts School in ABACO BAHAMAS

Every Child Counts (ECC), the only school in Marsh Harbour, Abaco, for children with special needs has been devastated by Hurricane Dorian. Without this school, many children with development and physical disabilities will have nowhere to go. 

Every Child Counts school delivers more than an education to its students. Here individuals feel valued, capable, talented and intelligent despite all the challenges life has thrown at a them. 

Hurricane Dorian left severe damage throughout the ECC buildings; drastic flooding, missing roofs, destroyed electronics. These children are unable to attend their stable environment.

100% of the donated funds will go to rebuilding the school and bringing the students back into this safe and enriching environment. 

For those wondering how we are connected to ECC: We have known Truman and Lyn Major since the 1980’s and first met their sons, Vincent and James, in 1995. This school was created from a vision of Lyn’s.
