We WILL

Our main mission for 2021 is to relieve some of the financial pressures that families and individuals are currently facing on Montserrat. The aftermath of the economic down-turn following the volcanic eruption, coupled with the effects of Covid-19 means that Montserratians are feeling the squeeze now more than ever.

The already high cost of food continues to rise, making this basic essential need difficult for many families to meet. On top of that the most vulnerable families have to deal with the additional high costs of electricity, water, and transportation, all of which aids in the vital responsibility of sending and keeping their kids in school to get a proper education.

Our 2021 food and school supplies drives will set the stage for making real change for these individuals and families in need. Helping a family with essential food provisions and school supplies has a great impact. The monies saved can go towards paying a long overdue bill, purchase the medicine needed for a child, or repair a roof that was damaged from one of the many tropical storms and hurricanes passing through each year. Do you follow?

We have made donating to one or all of our initiatives easy. Simply click on the cause that you would most like to support and give your gift. All of the money you donate will go towards helping that initiative. Also, you can head over to our donations page and make a one-time or monthly donation.

Thanks in advance for your support.

2022 School Supplies Drive

In 2021 we donated essential school supplies to 110 children at our special event. We hope to do even more next year. Help make this happen by donating now. Thank you for your support.

Food Drive

The economic downturn caused by the volcanic eruption, Covid-19 and high food prices makes meeting this basic need challenging for some. Help us ease this burden where we can by donating now.

BACK TO SCHOOL DRIVE 2021

We held our 2nd Back-to-School Drive on the 29th of August 2021. This year, with your help, we were able to provide over 100 of the most in need children with the supplies they required to start the new school term. We had a little fun on the day too… the kids enjoyed ice cream, sweets, a bouncy castle and music. What a great event! We can not wait to do it all over again next year – bigger and better – helping even more families. Without the help of our donors and supporters none of this is possible. Please help us on our 2022 mission, give a donation now.

A special thank you to Paul Lewis, Dunstan Lindesay, Lyston Skerritt, Javiere Adams (House Rat), Nicola Benjamin, Dennesha Jones, Teon Jules, Ajani Lewis, Ralph Remi of King Ocean Services and Kindred Ocean Solutions, Hewlett Williams of Better Services, Beni of Summer Breeze Restaurant, Stephen at Digicel, and last but not least, Moose from Moose’s Place. Thank you all for your services and hard work, we salute you. ?

GOLDEN YEARS DONATION OCTOBER 2021

Community is at the core of what we stand for and when we think about our communities in Montserrat we can not forget the hard work and dedication of our elders, who contributed to the island’s growth. The Golden Years Care Home, as many businesses in the private sector, has suffered from the economic downturn caused by the volcanic eruption and recently Covid-19.

With the help from our supporters, we were able to provide some much-needed sanitary items that have gone a long way in making life a little more comfortable and easier for the residence and carers… but there is so much more to do. The home has a list of items that they need to provide basic care to the residents. We would love to provide as many of these items as possible. Join us today to help the Golden Years Care Home by donating. No donation is too small or too large, we appreciate your kindness.

“On behalf of the Golden Years Home, l want to express our deepest appreciation to Project Aid Alliougana the fundraising group that has donated these items. We appreciate your thoughtful gesture and we are also thankful that you have chosen the Golden Years Home to be the beneficiary of these items. We look forward to your continued contribution in the future. An extended thank you to anyone who has helped in any way to make this donation possible.”Cheryl White, Golden Years Home Manager

2020 SCHOOL SUPPLIES DRIVE

In March 2020 we launched our first Backpack and School Supplies Drive.
We donated almost 500 backpacks and other school essentials to all pupils of
the three primary schools left on island. Education is the passport to the future,
so what better way to jump start our project other than supporting the youths?

As the new school year began, we were on ground to witness how proud parents were watching their children attend the first day of school, beaming with smiles, while sporting their new backpacks brimming with school supplies. Regardless of where kids call home, the quality of their backpacks and school supplies, or lack-there-of, will no longer be a barrier to their confidence and success in education.

“Big smiles from our students, as they received their schoolbags, which contained a few school supplies as well, compliments of Mr. Dion Bramble.” – Brades Primary School.

“Special thanks to Mr. Dion Bramble, a proud son of the soil for giving back to Montserrat’s education system. Many thanks for the school bags with school supplies. The pupils are happy to have received this timely gift.” – Lookout Primary School.

“I just want to say thank you for your kind donation and for thinking of the children of Montserrat. As a mother I appreciate it very much, especially in these difficult times. My son was excited about his new backpack so much so he transferred all of his books into it before he got home. Thanks again.” – Chamella Carlisle.

“This was a great initiative. I commend Project Aid Alliouagana on this donation which allowed for every primary school child on island to receive a fashionable and sturdy backpack. My daughter really loves her bag. The first thing she did when she got home was show me the bag! It was a timely donation, considering the issues surrounding getting school supplies this year. I do hope the entire Project Aid Alliouagana team are forever blessed; I am forever grateful.” – Thiffanie Williams.

Christmas is a special time of year when families come together in joy to celebrate the season. It's the time of year when families would eat, drink and be merry, when children eagerly await a lovingly wrapped present from Santa. But for some of our families on island, the reality of Christmas would be different.

We wanted to spread a little festive cheer and joy. So, Project Aid Alli's Santa got to work and delivered Christmas hampers filled with toys, books, and lots of festive treats to families in need.

“I would like to extend gratitude to Mr. Dion Bramble and Doncia Athill of Project Aid Alliouagana for their sincere generosity. My kids and I were thrilled and overwhelmed for the surprise fully stocked hamper we received on Christmas Eve day, as we were not expecting to get anything at all for Christmas.

The kids and I were very happy. You made our Christmas extra special knowing that there are complete strangers out there who are thinking of the less fortunate. We are extremely thankful and grateful. May God continue to bless you tremendously.” – Anonymous
