End-of-Year Campaign...and School's About to Begin!

Classrooms Under Construction!

We want to start with a huge thank you to all of our supporters! Our end-of-year fundraising campaign here on GlobalGiving brought in more than $6,000. These funds are so important to the mission of EFTC and the School of Hope. We could not meet our mission of support our students as they break the cycle of poverty in their communities without your generous support. All of students, their families, volunteers, and employees are so grateful. It might sound cliché, but it is true that you are changing the world for the better!

Our 2019 school year is about to begin! Teachers have been at the school for a few days, getting ready for the students to return. We have a great group of new prepa students joining us - students who will be starting their academic careers with us, and be on the path toward improving their families' situations and their communities. We're excited to welcome these students into the School of Hope family, where they will become part of our group of continuing students who make the world a better place. 

As we keep working on our mission and doing everything we can to support our students and their families, we need to continue asking for and depending on your support. We say it often, but we say it often because we mean it: everything we do is only possible because of you and your generosity! 

Please share our work with your colleagues, friends, and family. Be the avenue for bringing more supporters to our mission - it's a great way to make a huge impact in the lives of our students and to do your part in making this corner of the a little bit better!

We Have the Funds for a Kitchen Hood!

Because of the amazing generosity of our donors and supporters, we have raised teh funds necessary to purchase and install a kitchen hood.  This will make the kitchen a safer and healthier work space for our kitchen staff, and allow them to keep making nutritious snacks and meals for our students. It is because of all of you that we are able to provide the support and services that allow our students to be successful. 

Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us with this important project. We'll share photos once the hood is installed!  Check our website (www.eftcusa.org) for future updates!

The 2018 Academic Year is Wrapping Up...But Not Our Work!

Getting ready for arts & crafts time in 2nd grade!
Getting ready for arts & crafts time in 2nd grade!

Our students have had a phenomenal school year! They've been successful in their academics, enjoyed our new covered sports field (even during the rainy season!), and showed amazing resilience after the devastating volcano eruption. As they are preparing for end-of-year exams and activities, our staff is also preparing for summer school, which runs during the break of November and December. 

We've learned that our summer school programming is vital to the success of our students. It helps them maintain the progress they made during the previous academic year, and has them in a great position to progress as they move into the next grade. It also provides them with an important and meaningful way to spend their time during the break, as well as nutiritious food, clean water, medical care, and mental health support. 

We are so proud of the work we do with our students, and of the time and effort our dedicated school staff provides. But we know that we would not be able to do any of this without you and your generosity. It is our wonderful network of donors and supporters that really provide the foundation upon which we're able to build this awesome work. 

Please consider donating again to our mission. No donation is too small: your genoristy goes so far and does so much! Thank you for all you've done in the past to support us, and thank you for all you'll continue doing!
