*Due to scheduling conflicts, we changed the original dates.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.

There's an old story of a person standing by a river who suddenly sees human beings of all ages desperately struggling not to drown as they are forced downstream by the powerful water   Only a few of these poor souls are making it to the shore.  This person watching by the side of the river has an option to pull people out of the water one by one, knowing that not all can be saved. Or, this person could walk upstream and find the broken bridge where people are falling in to help to fix the bridge. This is the age-old controversy between assistance to those already caught in a failing system or prevention and working to fix the system.  

 

Since it's inception in 1999, the Louis & Mary Haddad Foundation has held steady in making education the primary means of helping improve the quality of lives of others.  In recent years, we focused on education after secondary school.  We established scholarships for students, with various challenges, who wanted to go on to earn certifications or attend college.  We've been working on pulling human beings out of the river.  As we continue to assist with post-high school education, pulling people out of the river one at a time, we will do what we can to help repair the bridge.  This requires a focus Early Childhood Education.

These two $5,000 grants are offered to assist organizations focused on the whole child from pre-birth through kindergarten.  This would include health and well-being combined with education.  It is more difficult to learn in environments unable to guarantee good health and well-being.
