IMPACT

To date, the Bernadette Francis Foundation has given US $29,000 in donations and contributions. We have awarded 111 recipients and helped establish a Women’s Tapioca Initiative in Dominica to spur sustainable economic activity and climate resilience. Our donations have helped students recover from hurricane Maria which was the worst natural disaster in Dominica’s recorded history. In addition to Dominica, our contributions have helped students in the United States, Grenada, St. Lucia, Zambia, Barbados and Cameroon. We are excited and eager to continue to assist students to overcome adversities and to achieve their goals through education. We are very aware that education not only impacts the child but also their families and communities.

Attending Orion Academy has played an integral role in molding my personal character.

 

I am currently enrolled in my 4th year of high school. In addition to my academic pursuits, I actively participate in numerous sports clubs and the music club. After graduating from Orion Academy I plan on attending the Dominica State College (DSC) in order to obtain a degree as I plan to pursue a career in law.
