The Impact of Donating Towards School Supplies
New Whiteboards in the Dominican Republic
Through donations from the Gift Catalogue, specifically towards school supplies, Nest of Love School in the Dominican Republic has been blessed with new whiteboards that have completely impacted the condition of classrooms!
In the classrooms of Nest of Love, the chalkboards were very old and overused. Originally from another school, they had been used for many years and had to be refurbished and repaired once passed on to Nest of Love. Through the years of having them, our partner Keiry says they had repainted them several times but there was not much more they could do. Because they were used with chalk, the air was so dusty it became damaging for the health of the teachers and the students. In addition, due to their poor quality, the students in the back of the classrooms could hardly see what was written on the boards, making it very difficult to learn.
These chalkboards were replaced with brand new whiteboards that were installed in the classrooms! The teachers are thankful that they can use whiteboard markers instead of chalk, and it has been incredibly helpful for the learning of students as they can better view instruction.
“We are very happy we were able to buy the white boards. It is very beneficial not only for the students, but also for the teachers. The white boards help with the visibility in the classrooms, and we can already see some positive changes happening in the performance of the students. This is a dream come true thanks to God and CCI!” -Keiry, CCI’s Partner in the Dominican Republic
