A little bit about us...
Abraham's Tent was registered in November 2008 in the USA as a 501 (c) (3) charity
Abraham’s Tent, Inc. launched its Educational Enrichment program in March of 2014. This program is geared towards middle and high school students who need extra tuition but cannot afford to pay private tutors.
It is well documented that poverty decreases a child’s opportunity for success in school, regardless of the grade level. We at Abraham’s Tent are working to change this, one student at a time.
Thanks to a generous grant from the SharmaAllison Charitable Fund, the program has been expanded to include over fifty students.
EDUCATION: THE BUILDING BLOCK OF A PROGRESSIVE SOCIETY
Abraham’s Tent’s Educational Enrichment program will level the playing field for many students who would not have the opportunity of being admitted to a reputable school of higher education, be it high school or university.
Through our programs, students are able to prepare for:
Older students are able to prepare for greater academic achievement by studying curricula connected to their first semesters at the University of the West Indies. For those students who do not have the opportunity to attend university, this type of enrichment program can help them to become successful at other careers.
FREE classes are taught seven days a week, during after-school and weekend sessions, with an emphasis on mathematics, reading and writing. There is also a free Adult Literacy program offered during the summer months.
All courses are being taught by two experienced retired high school educators.
Two students from Line Path School who prepared for their Caribbean Secondary School Exams at Abraham's Tent have the top scores in their school as well as all of Berbice in their exam scores. Bharti Bhoge got 17 grade ones, and Tressiya Ketwaroo got 16 grade ones and 1 grade two!
