About the Organization

The Foundation Catholic Education St. Maarten (FCES) has been collaborating with various other organizations – including the Community Council of Middle Region/Defiance, the Dutch Diaster Fund, SMDF/Red Cross and the Rotary Club of Sint Maarten – to construct a Multi-Functional
