September, 2010: Prevention Requires Resources
Prevention through education requires scholarships plus resources. The foundation for our holistic prevention program has been laid, but to make this important work sustainable, we need donors like you to provide our scholarship students with the additional resources that give their dreams a fighting chance. $4 a week provides one child with tutoring, English classes, mentorship, and more; and it ensures The FREEDOM Project continues to grow. Give $4/week and Stand 4 FREEDOM.
