Our financial partners believe that every child deserves an education that will allow them to reach their potential and lead a full life. They recognize that if we work together, we can be the catalyst for dramatic systemic change in Bermuda’s public schools. Our partners are individuals, social businesses, corporations, and community organizations who provide the financial and human capital that allows us to support our public school teachers and students.
Your Donation Means Everything
Addressing education equity is not simple, and we don’t expect to tackle it alone. Our financial partners make it possible for us to work with experts to build experiential learning opportunities that focus on reducing the number of children struggling to learn how to read at the primary level.
How Your Money Changes Lives
Thanks to your donations, BEN is able to build a professional learning community that increases the services and opportunities available to public school students. Together, we are able to change the way Bermuda tackles education inequity in a way that no one else does — by supporting teacher development, resources and services available to primary school students.
