Volcano response

We are coordinating with local organizations to provide immediate disaster relief as well as ongoing support for populations affected by the eruption of La Soufriere. All donations to this fund will provide supplies, water, and food. Any amount you are able to offer will help offset the effects of the disaster, and help to rebuild the communities immediately affected.  

A tradition of care

building community, enhancing equality, helping people since 1970

About us

Our beliefs

We believe that by improving education outcomes, other social benefits will follow, including those related to population health and crime. The work begins with improving the foundation for education on the island, clarifying curricular outcomes, supporting literacy programs, and improving graduation rates. We also work hand-in-hand with existing programs, at the direction of local leaders, including school lunch programs, and in the procurement of medical supplies and equipment.
