Frederique Constant is giving $20,000 to an initiative called Keep Kids Learning, which supports underprivileged children to keep up their education during the current Covid-19 lock down.
Keep Kids Learning is a new program from DonorsChoose, an an organization that gives back to public school teachers across the country by raising funds for academic supplies to enhance student education.
To support school closures across the US to prevent the spread of COVID-19, DonorsChoose has launched the new program to support public school teachers and students as they continue their learning from home.
Frederique Constant has pledged $20,000 in donations that will directly fund various school teachers across the US and contribute towards their students’ education through virtual learning amidst school closures through the end of the 2019-2020 academic year.
“Frederique Constant is honored to be an ongoing partner with DonorsChoose, and to support the organization’s latest program – Keep Kids Learning – which has already made a significant impact in serving teachers and students in need across the United States. Through the significant work by DonorsChoose, we are very proud to help give back and show our appreciation to the hard-working teachers who are dedicated to educating their students remotely during this unprecedented time,” says Ellen Seckler, chief marketing officer of Frederique Constant in the United States.
Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose, adds: “We know that when students in high-poverty communities cannot go to school, their home circumstances, and the resources available in their homes, will define their education. Coronavirus threatens to widen educational inequality in America. With Keep Kids Learning, we’ve expanded upon our traditional model at DonorsChoose while schools are closed to support teachers in our highest-need communities as they face a new set of unprecedented challenges.”
