    Story

    Kimberly George was an MA Education student at the Institute of Education, University of Reading 2016-17. She recently returned to the British Virgin Islands with her family to take up a new post as School Principal of Bregado Flax Educational Centre - Primary Division. In the aftermath of two recent hurricanes, Kimberly has found herself in one of the most challenging situations a new Principal could be in. In a recent email she explained:

    "We have been hit really badly by two hurricanes. The BVI is quite devastated now. No communication or anything. Most persons have lost everything. And leaving the country. My family is well. We lost our roof and the things in our home but we are alive. Thank God. My girls had to be relocated for school, as school will not be up and running for a while. They are staying with my family members abroad. It is quite difficult but the people of the territory is working to rebuild."

    "As the new Principal of the primary school it is going to be challenging in my role as we have lost more than half the schools in the territory. I am working with the staff and people in the community to see how best we get the school up and running, with government help of course. Our education department resume school with the first group of students on October 5. We will be housed in a temporary building until we get the school fixed."

    The purpose of this 'Just Giving' page is to help Kimberly raise funds for equipment and teaching materials for the school. Bregado Flax Educational Centre (secondary division) was destroyed. The primary division will be usable with repair. The children will be taught in temporary school accommodation while repair work is underway. There is a desperate need for equipment and teaching materials. Please donate what you can to help.
