The Problem

Project Catch-Up is planned to select 20-30 children from this geographic area and address the cultural, educational, emotional and self- confidence void created in this underserved community

Our Plan

The infrastructure for the project is made up of four parts designed to first address the children’s cultural and heritage needs through a program that will provide an enriching educational experience that empowers African Americans and others to become self-confident and others mindful of black history and compassionate individuals. The second link in the Catch-Up project is the technical component, the Raspberry Pi a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard built by the child. It is a capable little computer which will be the focus of student electronic projects, and for many of the things that a desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video. The third link of the technical approach is equipping and training the students in the use of 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tablet. The fourth link is making gospel piano lessons available for selected students because the churches in Chester have a dire need to replace the aging artist of this great music form.
