Suriname - Adopt a school

Sourced from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


In the year 2000 within Suriname the net primary school attendance rate was 78 percent. < Read more>

School attendance is significantly lower in the rural interior than in the rest of the country at 61.2 percent. As of 2000, 84.0 percent of children who started primary school were likely to reach grade 5.

Although the government covers the majority of primary school costs, parents must pay school registration fees and provide school supplies and uniforms. These costs limit access to education for children from poor and large families. Bush Negroe children

Lack of transportation, appropriate facilities, and a teacher shortage also present barriers to school attendance

Adopt a Suriname School is a programme that is very similar to the Schools Twinning programme that UCT is working to establish throughout the Caribbean and into South America.


This new programme enables a church to help and support schools, Inter School Christian Fellowship or Son Shine Clubs within our local Caribbean schools starting in Barbados and rapidly extending initially into Trinidad, Antigua and Suriname.

The benefits to be gained for participating churches include:

• the opportunity for lending compassionate support to students from the Caribbean;
• the learning experience of a cultural exchange of information on respective countries;
• the opportunity to form long-lasting friendships via Internet and airmail;
• the exchange of ideas, opinions and “a glimpse” at the lifestyle of another child;
• The opportunity to visit other islands of the Caribbean and South America and eventually Africa.

It is the intention of United Caribbean Trust to create a dedicated web page for each participating school; this page will be useful in lending encouragement to the potential for IT Programmes. It will facilitate familiarity with computers and will be designed to attract equipment and other “wish list” donations, globally.

This page is a framework that teachers and pupils can build on.

United Caribbean is willing and able to help in this process.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
