Abraham's Tent is a nonprofit organization committed to empowering underprivileged youth in Guyana by helping them achieve success in their educational lives.
- Providing financial support for educational supplies and transportation to attend school
- Providing academic and cocurricular support
- Working with families, teachers and community members to support youth through their educational experiences
Our goals include:
- 100% success rate of the passing the exams our students are studying for
- Teaching our students the importance of ‘paying it forward’ by encouraging and expecting them to volunteer their time at our school or within the community
- Building a larger school that would accommodate all grade levels
What We've Achieved
- Two students from Abraham's Tent were the top CXC graduating students in Berbice.
- Students who attend classes at Abraham's Tent at the 2017 CXC level have achieved 100% pass rate in the subjects they studied with us.
- Establishing a stand-alone structure for classes in both Grade 6 Assessment and CXC levels.
- 60% of our 2017 Grade 6 Assessment students have gained access to local high schools which is quite an achievement considering most of them were far below their standard reading level.
- We have recently hired a new teacher specifically to teach phonics to the younger students, most of whom start at Abraham's Tent with very little reading skills.
