The goal of A. P. Building Across Borders is to provide the means for the 8th grade students at Academy Prep to participate in a service project in the Bahamas through an organization called Bahamas Habitat. Their focus is on “disaster relief and emergency home repair” for impoverished families in the Bahamas and their aim is to “improve the living conditions and lifestyles of families in need”. The total cost of sending these students to alleviate poverty in the Bahamas will be $20,000; however the impact that this project will have on the students and the Bahamians, alike, will be of much greater value.
This project provides students with the opportunity to encounter other cultures while learning the value and importance of helping those in need. It is our belief that the students will return home with a firm understanding, and renewed appreciation, of themselves, their community, and the world. We hope for the students to be inspired by their time in the Bahamas and to retain a lifelong sense of purpose through serving others. In short, the message that we hope to impart is that charity is not dictated by wealth, status, or age, but by the passion for helping those in need.
