La Buena Tierra was started in 1999 as a preschool for children of very poor families who were entering first grade with no preparation. Next, the mothers dreamed of a quality elementary school. The children had become excited about learning, but they became frustrated and lost interest in the poor, under-funded and overcrowded public elementary schools.

While the US is in turmoil, all EPIC program partners are starting a new year of activities. These are modified to prevent the spread of Covid. In Mexico students pre-K through 6th grade at La Buena Tierra are studying virtually via cell phones. For children without phones, the director acquired donated used phones. EPIC provided some needed scholarships and school kits for kindergarten students who could not afford them.
