Education Programs

Parents face many challenges and raising children while in poverty exacerbates these challenges. Often times parents must make the difficult choice to either afford food for the week or purchase school supplies for their child. Unsatisfied that this happens in America,  

Americans Helping Americans has been delivering thousands of school kits to students every year and also providing an entire school their students supplies to distribute to all students. Living in poverty shouldn’t exclude you from being prepared for school.

We also believe in the importance of afterschool care. A child’s education doesn’t stop when the bell rings. Many students lack the tools at home to assist in their education such as a computer, internet, or a proper guardian to help with homework. Our afterschool programs across Appalachia provides tutors and funding for extracurricular activities to help children learn in more ways than one. Also, the students receive a nutritious meal which may be neglected while at home.

After School

Digital Divide


Appalachian students don’t receive the same resources as students in
other places of America. Our grants sponsor after school sessions with
both tutors to help a struggling student as well as after school meals they
may not get at home; sponsor tutors and vocational sessions for career
building; provide school supplies to thousands of students yearly; sponsor
summer camp groups to prevent hunger, boredom, and isolation during the
long months of summer; and give laptop computers to students who do
not have a personal computer at home to enhance their education.
