We Can't Do It Without You!

The girls we serve in after-school tutoring, Spring Break College Camp, ACT Prep, Robotics and the Emerging Leaders Middle School College Exploration Camp (pictured here) come to us most often as the first in their families to aim for college, often times from households where English is not the primary language, and at least six months behind in their grade level.  Here, with individualized, remedial curriculum and trained and caring tutors, they have a great shot at college and rewarding futures.  You can support them by making a donation to Mercy Education Project.  Just click the green Donate Now button above!

"Education is an opportunity and can be transformational for our most vulnerable communities; especially those, like us, working tirelessly in search of the American Dream. Programs like Mercy Education Project have successfully removed those barriers for many and have educated our women and girls and is transforming their lives."

"….Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential building block for a productive life. Increasing adult literacy also ensures more parents can be engaged in their children’s education, ,making this a cause  critical to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Thank you to Mercy Education Project for their tireless efforts to ensure everyone has an opportunity to learn to read. Together, I know we are making a difference.”
