Based at a University, we recognize that education is the key to ending poverty. We promote projects that support education to underserved populations. In 2009 we began a partnership with the School Sisters of Notre Dame Educational Center in Woodhaven, Queens. This center provides comprehensive educational programs for women over age 18 to learn English as a second language and to prepare them for the High School Equivalency Exam. Our Ladies offer educational testing and evaluation and provide enrichment lectures for the faculty, board members and students.
