A Letter From Amy, Yspaniola Executive Director
Dear Friend,

I hope you had the opportunity to read Saturday’s email from our wonderful teacher Mayra. (If you did, and you made a gift already, thank you so much!)

From the moment I arrived in the community of Batey Libertad and met Mayra, it was clear that her passion for education makes her an amazing role model and change agent for her students and community.

As Mayra said, we have overcome many challenges this year, but with your support, we can continue to provide the students of Batey Libertad with the opportunities necessary to attain literacy and excel academically.

At the moment, we must redirect funds for books and other classroom resources towards procuring hundreds of new masks and a variety of cleaning supplies each week. Your donations during this campaign will enable us to continue to purchase these urgent supplies. Our classes are more vital than ever, since the virtual classroom model does not adequately reach students in Batey Libertad.

We need to raise at least $50,000 in this campaign to prevent further cuts being made. The most at-risk program currently is our Food Program. If we hit our fundraising goal, we can continue to provide assistance to stave off food insecurity, which affects many of our students and their siblings each day.

We know that this year has been extremely tough for everyone, but please know that your contribution of any amount makes a significant impact. See how your funds will help the students of Batey Libertad:
With sincere thanks,

Executive Director
P.S. If you did miss Mayra’s email, please be sure to take 3 minutes to check out her video here!
