186_CIACIA & Montessori Fundraising Initiative

Dominica's Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said of the devastation the island suffered from Tropical Storm Erika: "The extent of the devastation is monumental. We have, in essence, to rebuild Dominica."

Caribbean International Academy (CIA) and Montessori School have joined forces to bring you the ultimate fundraising initiative. Like many St. Maarten residents, we watched in horror the devastation brought by Tropical Storm Erika onto the beautiful island of Dominica.

CIA and Montessori students, parents and staff members cannot stand by without lending a helping hand. Here is a schedule of planned events for this one-of-a-kind fundraiser. Join us in helping the victims and make Dominica the beautiful island once again.
