The mind once enlightened cannot again become dark.”

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION!

GENERAL FUND

Your generous donation will be applied to the most urgent need of a school. Matching grants are often available to double the value of your contribution.




CAROL´S RICE AND BEANS

It provides supplemental nutrition at low-income schools to ensure that even the most disadvantaged child receives a healthy lunch. We also organize an annual Raffle to collect funds for this program.

LORENZO MARBUT MEMORIAL

Lorenzo was an avid reader and felt deprived if he didn’t get to read at least 8 hours a day. In his memory, it is only fitting that we build a library in his name. Lorenzo passed away peacefully in his sleep on 5 October 2020.  Rest in Peace!

Gaze into the face of another

“…to gaze into the face of another is to gaze into the depth and entirety of his life.”

John O’Donohue

Eyes graced with wonder

“When our eyes are graced with wonder, the world reveals its wonders to us. There are people who see only dullness in the world and that is because their eyes have already been dulled. So much depends on how we look at things. The quality of our looking determines what we come to see.”

John O’Donohue

The potential and the miracle

“…we are custodians of deep and ancient thresholds. In the human face you see that potential and the miracle of undying possibility.”

John O’Donohue
