The Problem

The goal of the Wesley House applying for this grant is to educate our students and their families of the health problems that are attacking the African American in Omaha. Below I have listed a curriculum list that we have already started to implement with our students. Right now we do not have the funding to carry out many of the lessons that I have created. I know that it is imperative to educate these students while they are young so that they will grow up with healthy habits.
