Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Problem Summary: Equal access to education is a problem that is universal. It is not limited to gender, country or parenthood. It is a fact that underdeveloped or developing countries have greater barriers to overcome. Here in United States, there are different challenges that remain unaddressed. K-12 schooling is free through Department of Education and despite that '130 million adults in the US lack proficiency in literacy' and '36 million adults lack basic literacy skills' There are factors influencing access to education that remain unaddressed here within our country. It takes a greater support system for the children to be educated, be successful and break the cycle of poverty. One such cohort is the youth and children in 'Transitional Foster Care' who need immediate support system to be equipped with what is needed. Be emotionally strong to learn and ensure continuity of the education to succeed. We all need helping hands to be the change agents!.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Increase Access to Education for the needy children/youth

This program focuses on the most needy children within the communities by removing barriers to education that allow the children to be fully empowered to perform their best at school. This program is focused on helping transitional foster children and provide them with school supplies such that they have equal access to education right from day 1 of school attendance. We are preparing school backpacks for children and youth from pre-kindergarten through high school who are in need of school supplies.
We are working local and state Government Department of Human Services to support the needy children by providing free school backpacks filled with supplies needed at the respective grade level.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Eradicating Poverty Through Education:
We strive to be the support system to the children/youth that need help with continuity of education during the difficult times of their lives. We empower children with school supplies and provide assistance in ways that are external factors enabling children to succeed and emotionally be strong. Every child gets an opportunity to education and breaking the cycle of poverty.

Immediate Strategy: Help the most needy children within our communities regardless of the race, religion, gender or country. Work with local and state government in providing the transitional foster care children with education supplies.

Intermediate Strategy: Expand the access to education supplies to those in need across the country. Opening up the help portal for anyone needing help to reach out for assistance

Long-Term Strategy: Be the change agents to address the evolving barriers over time.
