Meet Emergency Needs


Crossover International Academy faces difficult circumstances often. Driving rain during the rainy season and blistering conditions from the Harmattan winds can wreak havoc on the crops that they attempt to grow. Weather can also be a big factor in successfully generating income through fishing. Due to difficult weather patterns, Crossover sometimes faces significant challenges producing enough food and/or income to feed all of the students. Wings for Crossover will help provide food as emergencies arise. Hopefully, through the use of aquaponics, the food shortages will one day be permanently solved.

Another important goal at Wings for Crossover is to help provide materials that will allow for a higher quality education at Crossover International Academy. To that end, Wings will provide basic materials such as paper and pencils. When possible, we will also donate electronic equipment.

 

The students at Crossover show their utter joy at receiving some basic school supplies. The supplies in the images above were donations from the Pegasus School in Huntington Beach, CA.

On this day, there was rice and chicken. For some, it was the first time they had ever eaten chicken.  Please help as we inch towards sustainability.
