Featured Project: Back to School
In July of 2022, TRA set the ambitious goal to send every new Afghan child in Nashville to school with supplies and a new backpack along with shoes and winter jacket. With over two-hundred kids to serve, we needed $40,000 to make this happen. Almost immediately, our incredible donors stepped up and pledged gifts that turned this goal into a reality.
Over three weeks, Afghan volunteers surveyed more than 150 families to ensure that every child had grade-appropriate supplies and right-sized shoes to be proud of. Together, volunteers and donors packed and delivered the backpacks to the kids and their beaming faces were all the thanks we needed.
The first day itself brought challenges and our students will need continued support. In response, our campaign has evolved to fund tutoring lessons, intensive English classes and enrichment programs for our youngest refugees. A gift to our program is an investment in a child’s future. Please join us while we work to make sure that those that made it here are not left behind.
