Every child deserves access to high-quality education and physical and mental health care, but sadly this isn’t the reality. Children of color and low-income children consistently score lower than white and higher-income children on standardized tests. Data on health disparities show that people of color suffer far more often from chronic diseases.
To address this, we’re investing in companies such as Edquity, which provides emergency aid to college students at risk of dropping out, and BookNook, an organization that gives students a learning advantage with access to world-class reading teachers.
Further, we are taking steps to help kids have their physical, mental and emotional health care needs met through a range of investments.
