Table Rock Helps Students Succeed
Table Rock’s generous guests answered the call to help others again this year by making it possible for us to award three laptops and one tablet to top performing kids in need as they prepare to move on to high school next year. Thanks to great travelers wishing to make a big impression while leaving a small footprint, Table Rock matched the donation of two refurbished Dell laptops with a Sony laptop and an Apple iPad.
For a country where high school is is not free and is only optional, and where the average dual-income family brings in less than $25,000 USD per year, the financial strain of advancing one’s education is not always a possibility. For those students whose families do find the funds to send them on to high school, the tools we know to be necessary for success aren’t always able to be had. Laptops and tablets, items most of us consider indispensable for learning and producing quality work, are prohibitively expensive for many families in Belize.
So, it is with great joy and appreciation that four outstanding students graduating from primary school receive these wonderful gifts of technology that will undoubtedly create a huge positive contribution toward their success as students at the secondary level. Congratulations to Raonie, Joanna, Lorely, and Kasie!
WANT TO HELP? PACK FOR A PURPOSE.
By packing for a purpose each time you travel, you can help local communities with important needs and social projects. Putting just a few items–soccer balls, pencils, printer ink cartridges–into your suitcase can add up to a big difference throughout the year for those who live in the places you visit. Table Rock supports two local schools with needed school supplies and technology. Check out how you can help at Pack for a Purpose or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
