Children in the Mississippi Delta region often lack necessary resources to help them thrive and succeed in school.Be Part of the Solution!
Sponsoring a child for $30 a month ($360/year) is one of the easiest and most effective ways to help PID make a difference in the Mississippi Delta. Sponsorship provides a child in the Mississippi Delta with access to all PID programs which are designed to have a lasting impact not only on the child, but their entire family and the community around them. One of our main focuses is to help students develop their full potential and prepare for their future. We want our students to be the best that they can be and pass along what you have learned.

Each sponsored child receives the following:
Elementary-Middle School Students

  • A birthday present and Christmas party with a present.
  • Access to all PID children’s programs (art education, cooking, and stress management)
  • Tutoring and computer training
  • Community Involvement

Through PID Sponsorship program, we are looking to break the cycle of poverty. Our children are the future. Across America, 1 in 5 children grows up in poverty. Of the counties with the highest poverty rates across the U.S., nearly 90% are rural. Because of circumstances beyond their control, millions of children never reach their full potential. It doesn’t have to be this way.

What does it mean to “go without” in America? It can mean no access to simple, but critical things like books, preschool, healthy foods, and places to play and exercise — things that help children thrive and grow in mind and body. It can mean no safety net in times of crisis — or being unable to see a future outside of poverty. We protect the nation’s most vulnerable children and give them early opportunities to learn so they can succeed in school and life.
