In rural areas such as Biolley, 2 in every 3 kids make it to the obligatory 6th grade level of schooling and 1 in every 3 go beyond that. 50% is the average attendance in school. Help us get these kids hooked on a future with education. By learning the basics in computer operation and our support, these kids have a better chance at staying interested in school and continuing their education.
The Biolley elementary school has a very dedicated educational coordinator who shares her office that doubles as the music room. She makes sure families are involved in their children's education. She needs our support!
