"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Every week, the Joshua Jacob Greenberger Learning Center (JLC) is home to 9 classes from nursery school to 8th grade. Not only do the children attending the JLC receive the education that they need to end the cycle of poverty, but they also receive warm, wholesome meals that keep their minds and bodies healthy and strong. The GPM solution of providing meals for children in school addresses both short-term and long-term needs of the children. The immediate need of hunger relief is achieved, malnutrition is abated, and a sound education is established to help promote a better life for children of the slums.
The Center is named in in loving memory of GPM-Entwine fellow Joshua Jacob Greenberger who tragically passed away in May 2017. Penny and Bob, Josh's parents were a driving force behind the inauguration of the center, which now serves over 300 children daily.
The impact of this program is significant: Children receive a quality education and nutritious meals each day giving them the start to life they need to break the cycle of poverty.
