Donating to IREAD was an opportunity to contribute to society in a very needy part of the world while leaving our children a namesake as their legacy. We hope that the building of the school will give hundreds of children the advantage of an early start to education that will sprout the seeds of learning to take the community to previously unimaginable levels of development.

The community has already benefited through partnerships and their own initiatives that have allowed them to return proceeds from their agricultural development of the school’s land.

On top of all of that, being able to experience the joy in the community, and watching the beautiful class of future students enjoy the newly built playground outside the school with our own children as their companions is one of our most cherished memories.
