The National Honor Society has been strategically planning different ways to raise funds and reach out to the community especially during these times of uncertainty.
We decided to partner with a non profit organization called Learn to Love. Before COVID, members of this organization would regularly meet in one of the rooms at Assumption Church every Saturday for an hour and teach lessons to less fortunate kids consisting of standards ranging from 1-4. These children attend Boissiere Village RC Primary School in Maraval. We decided to work alongside Learn to Love as three current NHS members are volunteers and head of this organization.
Due to the current COVID situation we are unfortunately unable to continue having face-to-face lessons. However, we have plans in place to transition into online teaching with the presumption of the kids having access to phones/computers.The NHS members thought it was a great idea to take this on as one of our projects as we are aware of the current challenges students are facing with their education. As always we want to help out in any way that we can.
In May 2020 we assisted some families with tablets (one of our recipients of a tablet in the photo below) we purchased with funds raised from our 2019 Bingo Fundraiser.
“Charity, like the notions of volunteerism and philanthropy, provides real social bonding and contributes to the creation of inclusive and more resilient societies. Charity can alleviate the worst effects of humanitarian crises, supplement public services in health care, education, housing and child protection. It assists the advancement of culture, science, sports, and the protection of cultural and natural heritage. It also promotes the rights of the marginalized and underprivileged and spreads the message of humanity in conflict situations.”
