Programs & Services Offered
We are striving to accomplish our statement of purpose through offering the services listed below to Sudanese and other immigrant men, women and children living in Sumner County. We are particularly focusing on Sudanese women, who have not been able to take advantage of opportunities offered because of family obligations, time constraints, child care,and transportation issues. These programs will greatly enhance the Sudanese people's integration and success in America
We have seen many lives changed for the better. The After School Program has enjoyed great success in the past year. Twelve children have received tutoring and help with their homework every Monday and Tuesday afternoon, with quantifiable improvement through improved report cards, as well as an overall increase in their self esteem and their belief that they can succeed.
