On Saturday, July 27 at Lake Calhoun, an enthusiastic group came together to walk for a quality education for all children. This is the fourth year that WE WIN Institute has brought community members together with one simple message – all children deserve a quality education.

teresa-bakerChildren from WE WIN Institute created colorful signs, and hit the Minneapolis streets to educate the community about the importance of a quality education for all students.

WE WIN touts “education excellence” through its year round programming with children ages 5 - 18 years old. The organization teaches all children who attend its program about the enormous accomplishments of people of African descent.

WE WIN Institute serves children of African descent including Ethiopian, Somalia, and African-American, Latino, Native-American and European Americans. It understands that all these children can learn about African accomplishments while strengthening their reading, writing, and mathematical skills.
