Why Should I Help The Children?
Children need help. 4 out of every 10 American children live in low-income families. Nearly a third of youth from low-income families (29
percent) fail to earn high school diplomas, approximately three times greater than the percentage of youth from middle-income families (10 percent) and roughly six times greater than the percentage of youth from high-income families (5 percent).
It is morally right that every child should be given the best chance to survive, eat well, stay healthy, and receive an education. Now we also know that it is among the best investments we can make. Healthy, well-educated kids grow into productive adults, capable of providing a better future for their own children, creating a virtuous circle that can help build a better, more prosperous world.
Improving the quality of education is another worthy goal, as even the healthiest, best-fed children will struggle to learn when their schools are substandard. To be sure, improving the quality of education is not easy; even rich countries struggle to do so. But it turns out to be exceptionally valuable to focus on very early education.
Transforming Young Lives!
We collect and distribute school supplies for children of low-income families, which includes a backpack, pens, pencils, crayons, folders,
paper, and other supplies. Being able to properly partake in lessons encourages youth to do so, especially if they are not provided printed notes. Children feel empowered when they have the supplies needed when they walk into the classroom.
We sponsor a student who is financially in need each year. We believe that the social and creative aspect of band is an excellent way for youth to grow and develop strong bonds and skills.
A fine arts education — including music, theater, drawing, painting, or sculpture — whether in practice or theory, has been a part of any well-rounded curriculum for decades — but that may be changing. Many schools today are cutting back or eliminating their art programs due to budget constraints. It is estimated that by the end of this year, more than 25% of public high schools will have completely dismantled them. These stats aren’t just bad news for teachers working in the arts, such as those at traditional schools for dance or online colleges for photography. Numerous studies done over the past decade have demonstrated the amazing benefits of such an integral education facet. Students who don’t have access to art classes may not only miss out on a key creative outlet, but might also face greater difficulty mastering core subjects, higher dropout rates and more disciplinary problems.
In 2017, we will begin offering a yearly scholarship. The scholarship will be setup and managed by Scholarship Management Services.
