Our mission is to provide Antigua and Barbuda Primary School student with the tools they need to better their education. Antigua and Barbuda Associations United (ABAU) Education Committee spearheaded by Antigua and Barbuda Students Association-USA for the 2018-2019 School Year. The Education Committee identifies the educational needs of the Community. The committee creates quality, value-added programs to enhance professionalism and business development goals for our students. Please Help!
Students struggle daily for not having the tools needed to help them in schools. "Poverty, regardless of level, is linked to reduced academic achievement." Students who live in poverty come to school every day without the proper tools for success. As a result, they are commonly behind their classmates physically, socially, emotionally or cognitively. Help us to make a change in these students life.
So, how can we narrow the performance gap? One answer is better funding of early childhood opportunities for our students. The Early Learning Initiative provides funding to support children from the start of school across the Island, specifically targeting children with special needs and families. Meeting some of the children's basic needs, like food and healthcare support at school and supplies.
This will have a lifetime impact on the people and the students of Antigua and Barbuda. It will help our students to achieve academic, professional, and communal success by creating a positive, supportive environment for their academic, professional, and social growth.
