OUR KIDS’ PARENTS WEIGH IN ON EDUCATION

November 1, 2010

Our KidsTwice a year, we host a parent meeting to update scholarship families on recent news, distribute the scholarships, help the kids write letters to sponsors, and hear from guest speakers.

  • 82% off all the parents said they believed their child was at risk of being sexually exploited.
  • 85% shared that education, awareness, mentorship, and resources were the key to prevention.
  • 15% believed prevention wasn’t possible at all.

We also asked the kids’ parents a few questions about their own education. Here’s what they said in response to the following questions:

Survey results

When asked if they believe education is important, 100 percent of our scholarship students’ parents said “YES.”

We couldn’t agree more.
