Each year IBSF hosts a Silent Auction fundraiser that helps us raise the funds needed to sustain the school annually. The generosity and passion we have experienced in past years is incredible – the proceeds have made it possible for The Shining Light School to offer a Nursery School, a Primary School, and now a Junior Secondary School. Prior to IBSF, the school was merely a thatched roof that hosted 70 students, today, thanks to kindhearted donors and community partners, they have two 6-classroom brick buildings and enrollment has increased to 200 students who attend from all areas of Ishahayi Beach. It has been an amazing journey and we are excited to continue supporting the school as it grows in size, number, and level of education!
The earnings raised in this year’s Silent Auction will not only fund school operations, but also go towards improving the Sustainability Program, installing solar panels to reduce generator expenses, provide teacher training, new textbooks and an updated curriculum. In addition, the foundation intends to sponsor graduates of the Light school to pursue high school education and University.
We appreciate all your support and encouragement!
