Help cover the educational costs for one needy child at La Buena Tierra Elementary and Preschool in Cuernavaca, Mexico. $350 is 10 months of tuition, plus other school expenses.
La Buena Tierra was started in 1999 as a preschool for children of very poor families who were entering first grade with no preparation and failing. Next the parents were asking for an elementary school. In 2009 EPIC was able to help La Buena Tierra buy a small piece of land for an elementary school. Each summer beginning in that year another elementary classroom was built and an additional grade was added. The hope was that by building an additional classroom each year, the primary school could offer first through sixth grades. They have now accomplished this! In 2016 they will be graduating their third class of students from sixth grade, fulfilling their long time dream. All of the families they serve are extremely poor and have very limited educational opportunities.
