Challenge

SAT score is a key factor for students to access to desired colleges and secure their future career. SAT tutoring and test practicing is essential for scoring high in SAT test. But, students from low-income, immigrant families, parents with law paid jobs, and with less education and language barriers have less or no access to SAT tutoring and college preparation because their parents cannot afford. Thus, they have no equal opportunity to access their desired college, as those who can afford.

Solution

Our mission is to raise public awareness, provide educational outlets, use specialized programming, assist and encourage refugee women, girls and families displaced by the Darfur conflict so they may re-establish personal empowerment and flourishing communities in the face of adversity. Darfur Women Network, Inc. works with both refugees in Chad and those who have immigrated to the United States. We work to empower Darfuri women so that they can help their families, and therefore their communities.
College preparation project provides disadvantaged students from immigrants' and low-income families who have less education, language barriers, and low rate paid jobs with SAT tutoring and test practicing to improve their skills and knowledge to score high in real SAT test to secure their access to desired colleges and future career.

Long-Term Impact

In summer 2015, these students will score high in SAT test and start their senior year confidently to secure their desired colleges. By 2017, parents will be aware and supportive to their children that enable more disadvantaged students to join this project and to become positive agents in their community.
