In keeping with our Foundation's mission to support education, our Foundation's efforts are currently focused on improving students' experience at schools in need. Our first two adopted schools are the Enid Capron Primary School in Five Cays, Turks and Caicos and Vivien Vanterpool Primary School in Anguilla.
Nestled on a gentle slope over looking the luxuriant Five Cays beach The Enid Capron Primary School is as vibrant as the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The Enid Capron Primary School, formerly Five Cays Primary existed since the 1930’s. This school was first housed in a one room building situated at the southern end of Five Cays. The existing building started construction in 1975 and was completed in 1976. This was due because of the influence of Pastor Tom Rigby and many other Five Cays residents. The student population increased dramatically during the years.
The school is blessed with an energetic Principal, Mrs. Garland, whose perennial motto is to achieve, achieve, achieve. Currently, the school has a total of 503 students and 30 teachers.

We were also delighted that the ID Travel Group was able to welcome a number of students from the Enid Capron Primary School to New York to visit and to perform at Island Destination's annual brochure launch gala event. The children were able to enjoy the sites of New York City and their performance was a wonderful way to bring attention to the work of the Foundation.
