Summary

This project will build a much needed community center for around 300 hundred children in an extremely depressed community of Nassau, Bahamas. Currently we need to raise funds to purchase the necessary materials. The center will bring interesting programs, constructive activities, and new opportunities to educate and empower these children. The land was donated and with your help we can begin construction very soon. The center will also allow other nonprofits to come in and offer great programs.

Challenge

The challenges the community is facing: 1) Lack of constructive opportunities and activities for the youth 2) High rates of crime and violence among adolescents 3) Low exposure to and knowledge of foreign cultures 4) Low levels of education 5) Very low family income levels

Solution

The community center will provide constructive activities and new opportunities for the youth in the area, which will deter the children from crime by engaging and occupying their time. Through entrepreneurial and educational programs the children will supplement their public education while also learning the skills and mindset necessary to succeed no matter what your socio-economic status may be. Also domestic and international student groups, charities, and professors will be brought in.

Long-Term Impact

In its first 3 years, the community center will positively impact the lives of over 300 children and adolescents from the Hay Street area. The positive influence of the center's programs, role models, and safe learning environment will benefit the children and their families. The energy and creativity of the youth will be directed towards entrepreneurship, thus increasing social mobility.
