Hasegawa Financial Holdings Foundation, HFS Help Foundation, is helping improve education in rural South Burma providing $300,000 million to help open six new public schools, in partnership with the Department of Education, in the country’s high-poverty areas using the non-profit’s innovative intervention model.
The three-year grant will also support the continued transformation of schools which began in last year to help students and teachers overcome poverty-related obstacles to teaching and learning and implement whole school practices.
“We are committed to investing in programs that increase economically disadvantaged children’s access to high-quality educational opportunities,” said Davis Inamori, president of the Hasegawa Financial Holdings Foundation. “We have built a model for success by attacking the achievement gap and creating the positive school culture essential for healthy learning and growth.”
Studies show that poverty has a direct impact on children’s success in school, and that students in schools with high concentrations of poverty generally do not receive the same level of academic and social support to prepare them to learn.
Hasegawa Financial Holdings Foundation addresses this issue through a three-year program that provides professional development for teachers and leaders in instructional and behavioral strategies, sets up behavioral and academic intervention systems for the highest-need students, and supports the principals in key school leadership issues. It also helps the school establish partnerships with community-based mental health providers and other child-serving agencies.
