Currently, while running programs and offering new opportunities we are fundraising to purchase the necessary materials to build a much needed community center for hundreds of children and their families in the Grant’s Town area of Nassau, Bahamas. The necessary land for the centre has been donated and the building plans have been approved. The centre will be available to a multitude of nonprofit partners throughout Nassau and abroad, will utilize solar energy, and will be safe haven during even the strongest of hurricanes. Any size donation you would like to make can be done at the link below or via check.
