We Love Philly is one of 14 recipients of a grant. Each organization is helping to advance at least one of three goals in Philadelphia: strengthening kindergarten readiness, building early reading proficiency, or increasing rates of high school graduation.
My name is Neli and I grew up with my Mom and two brothers. I’ve lived in Philly my whole life and have witnessed the struggle that others have to go through in order to survive. My Mom has always done her best to make sure we are always good in any situation. This has taught me to appreciate the little things and where we come from. That is what inspired me to want to volunteer with the Sunday Love Project
We Love Philly is featured in their most recent national education magazine! It is our first national publication and we are grateful for the opportunity to help other educators around the country bring the classroom to the community. Shoutout to We Love Philly board member Cory Zoblin for writing the article.
Growing up in Philadelphia, we didn't really have the support that we needed from the communities that surround us. A lot of people work minimum wage and do not have the income to supply and feed their families.
