2016-2017 Novel Studies Fundraiser

About This Campaign

The Sunflower County Freedom Project's mission is to develop leaders. Our goal is for Freedom Fellows to become college-ready by pursuing freedom through literacy. We accomplish this goal in two ways: by providing a Novel Studies class in which students read and analyze at least three novels per year and operating a Freedom Library to provide diverse literature for our students' independent reading. During an academic year, we purchase at least five class sets of novels as well as books for the library. Your donation helps to ensure that Freedom Fellows have access to the resources they need.

Campaign to Support Sunflower County Freedom Project

At the Sunflower County Freedom Project, we believe that education is the seed of freedom. Without a challenging, achievement-oriented education, children in the Mississippi Delta will be as powerless in the future as were illiterate sharecroppers in the twentieth century. We provide after-school and summer school programming to students in grades 7-12. Our programs are rooted in five tenets: academic support, health and wellness training, arts enrichment, educational travel and character development. For every student that has completed our six-year fellowship, 100% of them have gone on to a four-year university of college of their choosing.

    Keep at it young ones (or old ones, I'm not a hater), knowledge truly is power and books will take you to places you haven't even imagined yet. Don't ever lose your passion!
