Name: Houston Secondary School
Number of students: 500
Date/Year: October 2015- present
Project Description: Houston Secondary School is one of our longest standing partner school. We started working with the school in 2015 by first renovating the school’s library. We also provided 600 books to fill the library. We then followed up by providing $500 US to pay for school lunches for up to 20 students to have one hot meal per week for one term. We hosted a school exchange project with the school and John Marshall High School in Richmond Virginia to implement a cultural exchange program between the two schools. To encourage the students to read, we sponsored an annual reading competition in 2019 and in 2020. We hope to continue holding this event once schools return. And lastly, we donated an additional 100 books to support the school’s reading program in 2020.
