This project has been established to aid the local schools which are currently over populated, under-staffed and under-resourced. It aims to improve facilities and resources, supply assistant teachers, and text books for every student.
With the over flow of immigrants, due to the booming tourist industry, the public schools have become over populated, under staffed and under resourced. Currently students attend school for 3 hrs a day, with teachers often having to group grades together.
With support, the project will include:
Education fights crimes, violence and wars...education unites us all.
Many thanks for your continuing support
Founder of the Mal Pais Education project
December we saw our kindergarten class of 2013 graduate and our new classroom were completed with generous donations from you and lots of volunteer work!
For 2014, we are sponsoring three of our graduates to study at the local non-profit bilingual school which is a considerable amount per month, so we have plenty of fundraisers planned for this year. We will also continue our own sponsorship program with the Mal Pais Education Project Kinder, we have 10 students starting on Monday!
We are grateful for the opportunity to unite our little community through education. Through our learning center and community center we're able to support and empower local families and facilitate a brighter future for our students.
Happy New Year and thank you all for your support in our community/education project.
All the best
We hope this report finds you well! A lot of changes for the project are coming up. We are excited to build a new classroom for the kindergarten and plan on a fundraiser to help with the building costs. We also have two volunteer teachers who are pregnant, which is very exciting! So we have been busy the past couple of months interviewing international teachers and we are happy to welcome new members to the team very soon.
