Back to School in these pandemic times!
George Bush Elementary School Principal, Carole Crowling accepted our collection of dry erase markers - still the most requested school supply! Check out her cool shield! 
 
In addition, over $150 was raised for the school to purchase more Dry Erase Markers when needed. This is the fourth year our club has provided Dry Erase Markers to Bush Elementary School.

Education Plus Today
In June 2014, our community center Casa de los Sueños (CDLS) opened to the joy of nearly 200 children and their parents.  Here we provide food, education, and activities in order to eliminate malnutrition, instill core values, and give them the resources they need to rise above their impoverished circumstances.  We offer our children a safe haven that keeps them off the streets, and exciting opportunities that keep them into education. In a country with the highest primary school dropout rate in Central America, our students believe that going to university is within their reach. Not only that, the children arrive to our program overjoyed to be there.  Instead of hunger, what these children – the “forgotten children” – now have, is hope.
