National Partnership Comes To KY To Help Kids

A national partnership comprised of Save the Children, StriveTogether, Partners for Education at Berea College in Kentucky and the Annie E. Casey Foundation announced recently plans to invest $1.2 million over the next three years into Whitley and Perry counties in Kentucky.The money will go toward helping the communities meet the goals they’ve set for themselves, said Nick Carrington, Save the Children’s director of collective impact. Officials said the initiative grew out of a desire to transform rural communities confronting high poverty, low resources and isolation. It seeks to use a broad-based approach to partnership-building within each community – involving schools, governments, nonprofits, businesses and individuals – to support children from cradle to career.
