Last Tuesday, the Immokalee Community School, which is operated by RCMA in Immokalee, was awarded a large grant by the Martin Foundation in support of the education of children of low-income farmworkers. This grant will allow these children to overcome obstacles such as poverty, migration, and language barriers as they enter into more formative years of their education. According to a local news article, only one-third of Immokalee’s children have had access to after-school services. The grant could give that number a great boost, allowing students opportunities during the summertime as well.
