Our May Donation will go to The Cities Mentor Project in honor of its founder, Kathryn Grant, Ph.D.
Kathryn writes, "I grew up in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where the impact of poverty on children was in your face. At stop lights, children carrying babies would walk up to your car to beg for money. When I moved to Chicago, I realized that poverty and inequality are also common in the U.S.
The mission of The Cities Project is to eliminate inequality in education by connecting high-resourced universities with low-resourced public schools.
