Summary

In March this year (2024), Tropical Storm Filipo caused severe damage to a Community Preschool where 70 local three to five year-olds enjoy "learn through play" lessons every day. The storm caused damage to the two classrooms, the store room and the playground. The school depends on support from the nearby Bahia Mar Resort and its guests. With a little help from our friends, we can urgently make lasting repairs to return this preschool a safe and comfortable place for the little ones to thrive.

Challenge

Heavy winds and rain from Filipo broke the timber that supports shade above the playground and damaged playground equipment, classrooms, the storage building and the front gate. Although the school remains open, the children lack safe spaces to learn and play.

Solution

Our hope is to repair all of the broken infrastructure at the school including fixing the rooves, floors and doors of classrooms, the playground surface and shade and the front gate. With climate smart repairs, the school will once again be a place where the little children of the neighborhood can play and learn in safety for years to come.

Long-Term Impact

Through the generous spirit of Bahia Mar Hotel and it's guests, the community preschool has provided early childhood development for hundreds of children. It's a significant boost for their development from 3 to 6 years old, before they turn six and enroll in government primary school. The benefits of early childhood development are proven to last long into adulthood in areas such as education, health and income. It's one of the greatest tools for ending the cycle of poverty.
