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 the university or college of their choosing or joined the armed forces.
