Ecole Mary Austin opened its cocunut straw doors in 1980 to 45 children. Since then, it has expanded tremendously maximizing the building’s capacity.
In 2008, MIA joined forces with Missionary Enterprises and Sanibel Community Church in Ft. Myers, Florida to remodel, solidify, and add a 2nd story.
We are grateful for the near completion of the school which provides shelter during educational endeavors.
The tragic Jan. 12th earthquake fortuanately did not affect the school, however it shattered many children with fear, preventing them from coming to school.
