Our Affiliated Site: Dennehotso Boarding School in Dennehotso, Arizona
The remote town of Dennehotso is situated on the Navajo Indian Reservation, amid the incredible desert beauty of northern Arizona. The Reservation comprises more than 27,000 square miles of spectacular but inhospitable countryside, extending into both Utah and New Mexico. Despite its massive scale and rich cultural history, residents of the Reservation are desperately poor.
There is virtually no employment. Broken homes, alcoholism, and inadequate food are constant manifestations of poverty. For this reason, Dennehotso Boarding School serves as a beacon of hope to its surrounding community, providing children here with a quality education – the key to breaking the cycle of poverty so that students may rise above the difficult economic circumstances from which they come.
