GUESS WHO OUR STUDENTS GOT TO MEET!

 

“Everybody in here today, listen:

glasses are freaking cool! I truly

believe this is a no-brainer for a

lot of people.”

– Ray Lewis 

  
We reached
milestone

” The fact that this initiative has taken something so simple and organized adults and the way we do work to help us make sure that young people in Baltimore can see, to me is proof of what happens when a community comes together around the need of it’s young people.”

– Dr. Sonja Santelises

this is our why:

 

” How many kids with poor eyesight fail in school, lose motivation and ultimately lose access to positive futures? How many impoverished parents were once students with poor eyesight or other easily solved health difficulties? How many inner city communities suffer from having many young people who perceive no hope due to reading difficulties that could have been prevented?   Eyeglasses are not new and they are not magic.  Yet they may well be part of a solution to fundamental and persistent problems of education. “

 

– Robert Slavin
