Plenty of children are growing up in poverty and often left to their own instead of being nurtured by parents.  Many of them are gifted in some way, but the neglect they suffer over time often leads them to make wrong choices.  It also contributes to them falling behind in school to the point where success later in life is not going to take place.  Horizons offers a Summer program which helps to reverse the common falling back of learning.  The added counseling and mentoring seems to succeed where many programs fail.
Since Horizons is purely funded by private donations and grants, it needs your help to keep these programs alive and healthy.  It is way less costly to society to get people out of poverty by teaching them how to learn and thrive.  The presentation was touching and meaningful to attendees.  You should have been there.
