Puerto Rico Montessori2Montessori

When Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane Maria, it devasted the island.  Included in this devastation are Montessori schools of all levels as well as the Instituto Nueva Escuela (INE), the training center there.

Here's a way for Montessori schools - and anyone who cares about education - to help.  

Please contribute anything you can to help us make our goal.

The gofundme monies we raise will go to the INE for distribution to children & adolescents, schools, families, and teachers in need to get them back on their feet.  Lucibeth Colón is the financial coordinator who will be monitoring the use of the funds.

“The living idea of the solidarity of all men (...) closely united by so many bonds, generates a warm feeling of sharing in something great which even surpasses one’s feeling for one’s country.”

They need help NOW!  Let's be in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Puerto Rico, part of our own country!

Thank you for every donation, no matter how big or small.
