Community Spotlight: Plan USA, Haitian Relief
About Plan USA:
We are an independent, not-for-profit organization without political agenda or religious orientation.
More than 1,500,000 children and their families directly benefit from our grassroots, self-help programs in health, education, water and sanitation, income-generation and cross-cultural communication. Indirect beneficiaries include an estimated further 9,000,000 people living in communities working with Plan.
We work to provide a better world for children now and in the long-term future. We make this happen by putting children’s needs and concerns at the center of all our programs and encouraging children to participate and contribute their ideas and opinions so they are truly heard in their community. Our work to promote child rights and lift millions of girls and boys out of poverty is based around eight core areas.
Community Spotlight: West Dallas Community School
"The West Dallas Community School was founded in 1995 to serve the families of West Dallas, an area of extreme poverty that for decades had been a forgotten part of the city. The school offers a classical Christian education for children in pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. The mission of West Dallas Community School is to provide students with a challenging educational experience designed to help them know, love, and practice that which is true, good, and excellent and to prepare them to live purposefully and intelligently in the service of God and man."
