Challenge

Kuru Kururu is located in one of the more rural parts of Guyana. Ninety percent of the students come from low income families living in farming villages. Kuru Kururu Primary School has been under- performing due to poor reading ability. Sixty-five percent of students read below grade level. This is due mainly to their nutrition, low memory retention and lack of parental guidance.

Solution

Our objective at Blossoms of Guyana is to further increase our investment into the education of low-income students living in Guyana. Our goal is to move towards developing a holistic approach to addressing the needs of the schools with which we work. Our aim is to address the most pervasive needs facing Guyanese schools, teachers and students to help improve educational outcomes.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help to eradicate illiteracy for 1,100 students living in Guyana allowing them to improve their educational and economic opportunities. We will address the low functional literacy plaguing schools by providing reading books for libraries and for classrooms. We will address inadequate access to technology by providing computers, laptops, printers, projectors and other media equipment.
