Happy Monday! Today’s Grantee Monday highlight is about one of our 2020 Education grantees, the Sanneh Foundation!¬†Open Your Heart provided funding to the Sanneh Foundation¬†to provide students identified as at-risk and homeless in St. Paul and St. Cloud public schools with personal care hygiene kits and snack packs.

The Sanneh Foundation, a Saint Paul, Minnesota-based 501(c)3 organization, established in 2003 by East Saint Paul native and current CEO, Tony Sanneh, was conceived to support community-based organizations and to assemble a supportive network to provide positive environments for urban youth to become thriving, productive adults. To help ensure academic success for the most at-risk of not succeeding academically, the Sanneh Foundation has built its reputation around a primary offering, the Dreamline program, where youth workers (Dreamline Coaches) connect with at-risk students as classroom assistants, tutors, and mentors (in-school) and during after school enrichment activities. Each year, 20+ Dreamline Coaches work with 1,200+ underperforming students in 10+ specified partnering schools. Thank you Sanneh Foundation for the incredible and inspiring work you do for students in need!
