Challenge

Around the country thousands and thousands of children in elementary school can not do math or read proficiently. Most teachers are not trained in how poverty and stress affect the brain and how to transform this condition. Most disadvantaged kids start school with a 75% vocabulary/ experiential deficits. They have no foundation in math and do not connect to symbolic math. They also have no exposure to music or foreign languages already appreciated by wealthier peers. Make a difference!

Solution

Our new book Hands on Parenting a guide to happier, healthier, smarter kids is beginning to make a difference leading parents to resources they can access on the low cost refurbished computers we distributed with a priceless amount of learning software loaded on the computer. With your financial contribution we can make an even bigger difference.

Long-Term Impact

In a relatively short period of time, underprivileged kids can not only reach learning milestones on time, but start school ahead of the curve. This will significantly impact their continued academic success in school, gain them entrance to college, and break the cycle of poverty. Our positive impact in the local community can be replicated to all needy children around the world.
