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.
