Summary

Months after Hurricane Maria devastated St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, many at-risk youth across the island and their families are desperately in need of the basic necessities, including food, water and toiletries. We at Project Promise, (PP), the three-year-old St. Croix-based, (501(c) (3) non-profit, are more determined than ever to helping the most vulnerable among us. Your gift of just $10 US can help at least one child get a nutritious meal. Won't you lend a helping hand today?

Challenge

It's been almost three months since Hurricane Maria devastated St. Croix. Many at risk children literally remain in the dark, while others have seen their homes, roofs, and belongings vanish with the storm. The daily school routine is a thing of the past and finding food and water daily has become a burden for their now jobless parents. Project Promise urgently needs financial support to help these future ambassadors of St. Croix to not just survive, but thrive. Won't you help us today?

Solution

Since 2014, Project Promise has been working hard to help youth across St. Croix achieve their dreams. We know that if we uplift, educate and empower the next generation, then the future of our island will be bright. With your help, we can support with healthy meals, water, toiletries, transportation, academic intervention and personal wellness classes among other services. Please support our mission. And remember - 100% of all donations goes directly to giving hope to Project Promise kids!

Long-Term Impact

Project Promise is dedicated to bringing about positive change in our world. Our vision is to give at-risk youth the tools and support they need to live healthier lives. Our objectives are to enhance their decision-making and conflict resolution skills, enable them to discover their vocational interests, and ultimately integrate them into society and our economy. Our goal is to inspire a future of excellence and success for youth throughout the Virgin Islands community and the world.
