The Kingdom Kare, Inc is pleased to submit this donation request for $25,000.00 to support our remote Learning Centers for at-risk children ages 6-13 years. Funds will provide facilitators and meals for the students.
Our county has stated that there are over 85,000 children who attend the public-school system and since COVID-19 Pandemic, there were 10% of those students, roughly 8,500 who did not access e-learning classes. Most of those students reside in low-income neighborhoods and will be given a Chromebook for virtual learning. The same children will not have the support they need to get on-line, access the web, and have a person to answer any questions they may encounter. These funds will help eliminate the gaps in service to at-risk, low-income students who would be at home and not learning during this pandemic.
Each day will begin with Breakfast, then we will go into 3 hours of structured academic learning based on the schedule from each school to try to address some of learning time/space that was lost to many of these children as a result of school closures due to COVID-19. A portion of each day will be set aside for discussion about current events and questions the children might have surrounding COVID-19 and how it has impacted them and their families. Licensed mental health professionals will be available at least once per month to help the children navigate the many stressors that they are dealing with during this troubling time.
The psychological impact on children and adolescents from COVID-19 could be significant. Our children have suffered a great loss on several levels, whether it be missing their friends in school, food shortages or social interaction through outdoor play. Home confinement restricts children from their normal lifestyles which has effects on their physical and mental health. Since children are constantly exposed to COVID-19 related news which could alleviate their anxiety and panic, parents need to create direct conversations with children about these issues to avoid panic and reduce anxiety. This could also create opportunities to develop close and open communication with children so that any physical and psychological concerns are addressed. (Psychology Today 2020).
Furthermore, the virtual learning that has become a necessity as a result of social distancing measures due to COVID-19 has introduced additional stressors into young people’s lives as they are pressured to get the work done without the necessary resources to do so. Our COVID remote learning centers will not only support our children, but their families in a way to relieve the stress and pressure of having to become their teachers, while also making sure that they have food on the table.
