Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
There are almost 16 million children (or almost 22% of this country’s child population) currently living in poverty (half a million of these kids live in Ohio, a million in Kentucky and a million and a half of these kids live in Indiana). AND since 2012 the majority of these children live in the suburbs. When the War on Poverty was declared in 1964 we have 19% of all this country’s children in poverty. Clearly, in the 55 years since then, we haven’t made the changes that millions of kids in poverty need. However, we have learned a lot! We have learned that food, clothing, shelter and medical care are critical for these children to survive but frankly, surviving is not thriving and everyone agrees that the only thing that will allow these kids to thrive long term, and not end up as adults in poverty, is Education. AND schools can not do this alone. This is why NEST Community Center was born. Our mobile classrooms, with their year round programs, deliver, right to the kids’ front door, award winning and proven systems that are designed to be built WITH the community, FOR the community, IN the community. Grades and test scores are up, teachers report more confident and better behaved low-income students, and local police report reduced vandalism, petty crime and drug activity where NEST serves.
