One of our biggest goals is to educate the children in our program so that they will be the last generation to be born in a shack. The classes taught at the community center change their lives, give them skills and confidence and give them hope for their future. The education classes are taught by our students who are now in college and trade skills are taught by adults from the neighborhood who have received homes.
To date, we have 22 students we support in college and more that we support in high school. Each family is asked to keep their children in school and they are supported at our community center with tutoring by our college and high school students. 250 kids and adults come to the community center each week for tutoring, classes, counseling and to learn trades.
