All of the Teachers are Asylum Seekers who have degrees from their home countries. We currently have a Doctor, English Professor, IT person, and their professional backgrounds and credentials go on and on, working as Teachers because they have no other options. The Sidewalk School now employs 20 Asylum Seekers (ALL get paid weekly), some who live inside the Encampment with The School's students while others live close to the Encampment (in Matamoros). Recently, we have expanded to Juarez, México to serve the Children Asylum Seekers who have been out of school for a FULL calendar year. The Children Asylum Seekers in Juarez live in shelters spread out thru the city BUT are able to attend classes because of the Amazon Fire Tablets The Sidewalk School provides to each family. We are currently in need of another 100 Amazon Fire Tablets for the Children Asylum Seekers in Juarez, México. Please donate so these Children can go back to school, safely online via The Sidewalk School.

 The Sidewalk School also provides School supplies, Mosquito Netting, backpacks, Children’s Vitamins (on a monthly basis), shoes, clothing, Lunch (5 Days a Week), fruit, sunscreen, cleaning supplies, detergent (given out to the students on a weekly basis), books, Children Face Masks, Dinnerware sets, Amazon Fire Tablet Covers, tents (for the families to live in) and the list goes on and on. We try to help as much as possible in anyway that is needed by the Children Asylum Seekers so please help and Donate. Thank you ❤️
