education is everything

1 in 5 children worldwide are not in school. 

Children with disabilities, children in crisis, and girls, face the most hurdles to gaining an education and suffer the sharpest consequences when they miss out. Education for all can help safeguard against violence, abuse, and exploitation, and even reduce vulnerability to natural disasters. Child or adult, a person with an education has an opportunity to a  future that would not be possible without an education. A woman with an education has higher earning potential and healthier children, and the more education that a person gains, the more opportunities become available.

Love In Action

Small Home Construction Project

Our Goal

​2023, ADRA Bahamas wants to continue engaging in the Love In Action: Shell Home Construction Project. The goal is to provide Level 3 storm-resistant shells to households in the Northern Bahamas urgently in need as a result of the loss of their home being destroyed by Hurricane Dorian. We invite you to partner with us in our efforts! Our goal is currently 30 homes, but with your generosity, we can help more families, to have one less thing to worry about in this and other hurricane seasons.

Education In Emergencies

"Disaster Zone"

Still reeling from Hurricane Dorian and then faced with Covid-19, we provided over 200 hygiene kits and cases of water for families identified by Social Services in Grand Bahama; provided over 1,000 tablets along with free data to schools throughout Grand Bahama, Abaco, and all Children’s Homes and shelters in New Providence; we purchased and installed 128 Sanitation stations throughout every school in Abaco and Grand Bahama and freely repaired 41 roofs throughout Abaco and Grand Bahama for educators.
