Education & Culture

“Knowledge is power.  Information is liberating.
Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.”
Kofi Annan

Education remains at the forefront of the Foundation’s efforts to enhance the quality of life in our North Shore community. We have lots of news to share!  2017 was a very busy year for our Education Committee and we are pleased to announce that we are instituting two after-school programs in addition to furthering our Let’s Build a School initiative.
