Sponsor a Child for School: School is available for children K-6 in our area. Unfortunately, 7-12th graders leave the Island for the mainland to find schooling. This puts major financial stress on the families & danger for the young students. Each K-6 child here must pay for books, uniforms (including hair supplies for girls) , supplies, & lunch to attend. The total amount for the year: $40 ($3 yearly registration, $1/month for 10 months for food, $15 for uniform, & $7 for books) . We currently have 246 students in the two schools. Of those 246 students are not attending school because they cannot pay the enrollment. These students have either 1 or no parents (if they have parent(s) they have major hardship that prevents them from paying themselves.
