Ambergris Caye Elementary School is a small private school in San Pedro, Belize. Dedicated to quality education all classrooms have less than 15 students providing one on one attention to student helping them achieve their fullest potential. Currently 2 classrooms and a library with a small computer lab is under construction through private donations. Scholarships for students with financial need are also funded through private donation.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Currently our school is in the process of building a much needed library. Once the walls are in place we are still faced with the daunting task of furnishing and filling the shelves with books. Our students need the resource materials and space to enhance their learning experience. Our library will also house a small computer lab giving our students access to computer training and research.
How will this project solve this problem?
Launching this project will allow the school to purchase and import the books and computers to complete this project. Teaching or learning without the proper facility or the needed resources makes an already difficult task overwhelming. The completion of this project will enhance the learning environment and the learning experience of the students at Ambergris Caye Elementary School.
Potential Long Term Impact
A library and computer lab will provide the much needed resources for children for generations to come. Enhancing and upgrading the quality of education in San Pedro is a primary goal at Ambergris Caye Elementary School. Education is the means to a better life for the children of this island town, providing the necessary resources is our main objective.
