A little bit about us...
Abraham's Tent was registered in November 2008 in the USA as a 501 (c) (3) charity
It is well documented that poverty decreases a child’s readiness for success in school, no matter the grade level. We at Abraham’s Tent are working to change this, one student at a time.
The Education Enrichment program was launched in March of 2014 for middle and high school students who need extra instructional time but cannot afford to pay private tutors.
Through our program, 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. And for those who do not have the opportunity to attend university, this type of enrichment program can help them to become better prepared members of the workforce.
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.
Abraham’s Tent’s Educational Enrichment program will level the playing field for many students who would otherwise not have the opportunity of being admitted to a reputable school of higher education, be it high school or university.
Two students from Line Path School who prepared for their Caribbean Secondary School Exams at Abraham's Tent have TOPPED THE COUNTY in those exams. Bharti Bhoge got 17 grade ones, and Tressiya Ketwaroo got 16 grade ones and 1 grade two! They both attended the Abraham's Tent after-school program.
