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.
