A new school building will allow us to double our capacity and improve the quality of education we offer to our students.
We are raising money for a van to replace a suburban that has broken down. The van will have more space to pick up students.

Our onsite leadership team is in desperate need of new computers to efficiently carry out their daily administrative responsibilities.
We are currently raising money to create a library that will include more than 500 new children’s books.
To save money each month and to promote renewable energy, we are raising money to install three solar panels at our base.
SPECIAL EDUCATION SCHOOL BUILD
Every child deserves to have access to a quality education. Unfortunately, in high-poverty communities around the world, public schools are often unwilling or unable to accept children with intellectual or physical disabilities. For that reason, Eternal Anchor started a special education school in the rural San Quintin Valley in 2015. Today, we have 40 students receiving quality, individualized educational services.
However, there are many more students on a waiting list. A new school will allow us to double our capacity and improve the quality and range of services offered to students. In August 2023, we broke ground on the site of this new school, located just two blocks from Eternal Anchor’s operations base and casa hogar. As 2024 began, footings for the perimeter wall were complete. Additional work will be started as funding allows.
Every day we pick up children so they can attend our Educational Services program. Without reliable transportation, most of our students wouldn’t be able to attend our program and wouldn’t have access to a quality education, physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy. We are raising money for a van to replace a suburban that has broken down. The van will have more space to pick up students and will have better gas mileage than the suburban, which means we will be paying less each month on gas.
