17 May Pathways for Prosperity Moves Ahead
Take a moment and imagine: Imagine a child from a single mother who has spent her last years working three jobs, a child who is a latchkey kid and rides the bus home to an empty house each day, prepares dinner for his siblings and often tucks them in at night because mama is still working. Imagine a child who leaves his siblings in the bed and walks down to the local corner store late at night because the family is out of milk or bread and he has to make sure they have the milk for breakfast tomorrow.
Now imagine a better way of life for this child. Imagine this same child is now given the opportunity to see a real career path for herself so that she can achieve something better than her mother. After all, isn’t that what all parents want, for our children to be better off than ourselves?
