Challenge

Many public schools in Guyana are severely underfunded and without proper funding, schools cannot afford to provide books for reading supplies to students. Additionally, 35% of Guyana's population lives in poverty. This means that many parents do not have the funds to provide their children's school supplies. Blossoms will help to address the funding shortage by providing books, school and teaching supplies to improve literacy in schools and educational outcomes for students.

Solution

Blossoms will build a library, provide reading books, school and supplies and teaching supplies to a primary school in Guyana. By providing books and schools supplies we will be able to improve educational outcomes of students in Guyana.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help to eradicate illiteracy for 250 students living in Guyana allowing them to improve their educational and economic opportunities.
