Raised by 124 people in 6 months
Created October 5, 2017
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.

Headlines: School Closures Loom In Puerto Rico As Enrollment Shrinks After Maria

The Article: https://www.npr.org/sections/ed/2018/01/04/574344568/school-closures-loom-in-puerto-rico-as-enrollment-shrinks-after-maria

While some schools will close, the students who remain need a quality education. Ana Maria Garcia Blanco, the drive behind the Montessori movement in PR, is working hard to continue their effort to revolutionize education through Montessori philosophy.

This fund goes directly to the INE, the Montessori training program for teachers, who is using the money we raise to rebuild and restore the Montessori programs on the island. It does not go to the government.

Please dig deep - every bit helps! And SHARE with others.

Thank you!
