Help Us Educate the Kids and Give them Self-Empowerment for the future
Early childhood education– Divine Grace offers programs that serve low-income families who cannot afford the full cost of their child’s education especially during summer. Providing support to kids through education services helps the kids to grow morally, educationally, and mature in the community allowing more children to access the services. Children also participate in school garden that help them to grow their own vegetables, plants, and flowers.
Reading materials– Majority of low-income families do not have age-appropriate reading materials and computer for their children at home and almost 60% of early childhood education centers need books for children. Providing support for programs to disseminate reading materials can help increase children’s literacy levels.
