The Road to Freedom Starts With You
Road to Freedom is a campaign for the Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools® program, a free 6-week summer program for children ages 5-18. The program is based on the three pillars of Literacy, Leadership, and Social Advocacy.
Research shows that only 48 percent of children living in poverty are ready to learn at age 5, compared to 75 percent of children from families with moderate and high incomes.
But you can help do something about it.
Help pave the way for at-risk children to reach their full potential by starting your own Road to Freedom fundraising page today.
Getting started is really simple … just follow the prompts on this page. Then urge your friends and family to help you support CDF Freedom Schools® children with:
- Critical summer and after-school reading programs to promote literacy.
- Books to create their own home “library” and a love for reading.
- Mentors to help them navigate life’s struggles.
- Meals to nourish body and soul.
Become a fundraiser and help more children on their journey to Literacy, Leadership, and Social Advocacy . . . and toward becoming your community’s best citizens!
(If you’re unable to start your own page, please consider making a donation today. Every dollar helps a child take another step toward a brighter future. Thank you!)
