McKayla and Mackenzie

You can feel the energy and excitement inside Global Ambassadors Language Academy. Elementary students arrive after school, excited to keep learning! The after-school program, a Kid’s Café partner of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, teaches children new languages and helps them explore new cultures, and provides the students with healthy after-school meals.

LaTonya’s two daughters, Mackenzie and McKayla, are two of those excited students. As the girls play with their friends before Mandarin class, LaTonya shares what the program means to her family. “I really can’t afford to feed my kids snacks and a lunch,” she explains, “It helps to give them something to eat before they get home.”

With full bellies, McKayla, Mackenzie, and their fellow students are ready to learn! Your support means the world to these students. “Thank you to everyone,” says LaTonya. Your generosity is helping these children focus on what’s important – their education.
