Challenge

Many of the public schools in Guyana are severely underfunded which leaves schools without the necessary equipment and supplies to properly educate students. Additionally, 35% of Guyana's population lives in poverty, this means that many students have to go to school without food. Without proper funding schools cannot afford to provide libraries for children or meals to students in need.

Solution

Providing meals will eliminate hunger and allow the students to focus on their schooling. Donating books and supplies will rebuild the library to allow students access to books to strengthen their literacy skills.

Long-Term Impact

This project will feed and educate 500 low income students which will allow them to improve their lives through educational opportunities.
