Program Description:

Wings for the Single Mom is a program initiative of Children First Foundation USA and is dedicated to increasing the quality of life and standard of living of disadvantaged and full-time working single mothers and their children by exposure to culturally diverse  educational and travel experiences. We believe culturally diverse education and travel programs will serve to expand levels of thought, to attain refinement, and develop the mind, body and soul for personal and intellectual growth and advancement in the hopes of cultivating peace, tolerance, and acceptance within our world. Wings for the Single Mom aims to offer exclusive theme based education programs with an emphasis on Human Rights Education and travel programs. Our aim is to focus on poverty stricken areas within the community to service children of single mother households in grades K-2 (Ages 5-8). More information may be found at www.wingsforthesinglemom.org

Program Long-Term Success:

Single mothers and their children will experience travel for the purpose of learning about other cultures, history, art, and music. We accomplish this by providing special local outings once a month. These outings include trips to museums, theaters, performing arts centers, parks, and historical sites.The outing and travel opportunities will enhance and nurture the relationship between the children and their parents/caregivers and will incorporate the theme based education process of learning into their homes to make the parent/child connection stronger. The interaction created among the children and parents/caregivers serve to create a dual role in which the parents are helped in bringing forth the expression within the children and in turn children empower the parents. This dual role creates a positive home environment for children and parents alike. Direct positive impact on single-mother households and children of single mothers.This program will raise multi-cultural awareness through travel and Universal Human Rights education in order to cultivate an attitude of acceptance and tolerance for other cultures and other people in general in the hopes of promoting peace among our world.

Program Short-Term Success:

We have impacted the lives of various families by exposing them to cultural events which served to enhance the parent/child relationship and to help the children expand their personal growth.

Program Success Monitored by:

Board of Directors, community members, and volunteers

Program Success Examples:

We had children go back to their schools eager to share their stories during show and tell. Our program tied into their educational goals and inspired them to learn. Improved relationships with caregivers & emancipation of the mind through creative processes.

Program Description:

Children are the building blocks of any society and as such we must strive to make education a priority in our society. We believe in allowing children to foster their individuality and to use creativity as a means by which to encourage and enhance academic learning. We see standardized testing as a tool that serves to diminish capacity rather than to encourage intellectual capacity. Therefore we stand together to promote Theme Based Education in classrooms across the nation and encourage advocacy & grassroots campaigns to diminish standardized testing.
