We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone that contributed to the School Supply Drive and helped make our efforts a success!
In 2017, DARDA provided almost 9,000 supplies to 19 primary schools throughout Dominica. 64 students from 4 primary schools received book bags with school supplies while the remaining 15 schools received bulk school and teaching supplies to be used and distributed as needed.
We were also able to send two boxes of various teaching, school, office and hygiene supplies to the Social Centre.
Since 2009 DARDA has aimed to promote literacy and education throughout Dominica one village at a time. To date, DARDA has provided school supplies to over 1,000 primary school students in over 40 villages including:

How You Can Help
This is a great effort and in order to truly be successful, we need your help! We seek newly purchased school supplies (listed to the right); or monetary donations, which will be used to purchase these supplies. Any amount is greatly appreciated as even the smallest donation will enable us to purchase several items on the list for a young, eager student.
ANNUAL SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
COMMITMENT TO LITERACY and education
Committed to promoting literacy and education in Dominica, in 2009 DARDA implemented an annual School Supply Drive targeting underprivileged students in villages throughout Dominica. DARDA selects a number of students from several schools and provides each with a book bag filled with school supplies for the entire academic year.
