In 2017 two major hurricanes hit our beautiful by nature islands, leaving many persons displaced. Among the many the most vulnerable ones were our elderly citizens and our special needs individuals.
Two of our islands were severely damaged by Hurricanes Irma & Maria and on both of those islands being Grand Turk & South Caicos the economy was already not in a solid state. United Way TCI came along with the help of United Way Worldwide & United Way Miami to fund a restoration project for 20 elderly citizens on those islands.
This project has returned smiles and restored hope in the lives of our recipients. We are more than half way completed, we need your help.
Help our elderly citizens repair their homes from the destruction done by hurricanes Irma & Mari
Reading matters – Reading proficiently by 3rd grade can be life changing. Third grade is when children make the crucial switch from learning to reading to learn.
Grade level reading skills enables children to begin mastering other important subjects like Math & Science. Students who are not reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade are at great risk of falling behind & never fully catching up. So we need your help to ensure that our children are reading at their full potential.
“Yes I Can Read” Reading Intervention
We have 3rd graders that are reading at kindergarten level. Help us to eradicate this literacy challenge. By giving to our reading program, you will help us surround our young students with programs and resources needed to ensure they are reading by 3rd grade.
