CENTER FOR CULTURAL EMPOWERMENT
Thanks and appreciation to our sponsors and donors who have made this initiative a success, namely: Microsoft Office 365, Baker College Flint, and a host of other donors, who wish to remain anonymous.
The Woven Vessels International Ministry and the Center for Cultural Empowerment was awarded the honor and opportunity to try out Microsoft's 365 most trusted communication and collaboration products until 2028, all brought together online. We look forward to partnering with Microsoft Office 365 as they help reduce costs and provide greater value through these services.
Baker College Flint donated 31 gently used computers.
Our goal is to create an after school program that would provide relevant application and practices unique to each individual's learning curve. The program would allow students to strengthen learning and build confidence based on their accomplishment.
Our community is a “melting pot” and residents represent various continents. The Lansing School District serves students who speak more than 200 languages. The campus of Michigan State University has a tremendous number of immigrants and resettled students with varied languages attending classes. We partner with the Department of Learning Services and the Department of African Studies at the university, as well as the Greater Lansing Literacy Coalition, who are committed to assisting with English as a Second Language (ESL) and translation in various settings.
Organizations that are committed to bridging the gaps are essential. Partnerships are limitless it is important to tap into the resources to assist as many newcomers as possible. Become a Sponsor!
