IP Awards $1,000 Grant to Children's Vision Intl. through Past the Periphery Program
Impossible Possibilities (IP) granted $1,000 to Children’s Vision International Inc. (CVII) as part of its international “Past the Periphery” program.
CVII is an international, nonprofit organization founded in 1993 whose mission is to “change the destiny of the destitute” by rescuing high risk children from a life of violence, abuse, hunger and death by providing them with food, clothing, medical care, education and a place they can call home. CVII currently educates approximately 350 students, kindergarten through high school, at its own private school in Bogotá, Colombia.
The $1,000 will be used to purchase new books for CVII’s school library. The English translations will assist the students as they focus on their bilingual educations.
“We’ve always had an international component tied into Impossible Possibilities, but it wasn’t until we recently had the opportunity to spend time with the students at CVII that we knew it was time to launch the program,” Executive Director Joshua Hernandez said. “We’re looking forward to working with the amazing staff at CVII and doing our part to help improve the lives of their students.”
Impossible Possibilities is a 501(c)(3) public nonprofit organizations based out of the Dallas-Fort Worth area providing education initiatives locally and abroad.
