With a donation of just $500, you can provide one month of comprehensive educational support for one child at I Grow Chicago to help close the educational gap in Chicago.
The pandemic created significant barriers to receiving an education for children living in vulnerable communities around the world. Children in Chicago’s south side neighborhood of Englewood are no exception. Remote learning presented extreme challenges for students struggling with a lack of access to laptops, the internet, and adult support during the school day. This has resulted in a disproportionate number of students falling behind in their education compared to those who had full-time educational access and support while schools were closed.
