In 2017 East Winds embarked on a project to support the children of staff members in receiving proper education by remaining in school. We realized that the average cost of books is EC1,000.00 or USD370.00 per year and for low income families that would mean having to borrow the money to purchase books with high interest rates.
In order to achieve this goal, we asked our guests to donate 1 USD per room for each night spent at the resort towards what we call our
East Winds Family Foundation.
Since the commencement of the Foundation in 2017 we have been able to provide all required school books to 44 children ranging from ages 6-17 years old. In 2018 in addition to school books, we were able to provide school bags and stationery to 46 children through the support of our guests.
We are thankful to our guests who have supported the foundation thus far and we look forward to a successful 2019 and the continued support of our loyal guests.
