Kids That Care Club (KTCC) is a division of St. Mary Crucifissa di Rosa Academies, Inc., a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
St. Mary Crucifissa di Rosa lived in the 1800's in Italy. In 1836, St. Mary di Rosa brought in impoverished girls to give them an education and founded a school for deaf children. St. Mary di Rosa lived her life caring for the sick and the poor - particularly young ladies.
We selected St. Mary di Rosa for the name of our non-profit corporation as she personifies all that we wish to achieve. We believe that all children deserve an education and equal rights.
St. Mary di Rosa Academies' principles of charity, social justice and equity in education are the foundation of our Corporate Values.
It is the vision of Saint Mary di Rosa Academies that deaf children be given access to communication utilizing sign language and that impoverished girls from the rural communities be motivated to learn numeracy, literacy, problem solving, cognitive reasoning and life skills.
St. Mary di Rosa is building a new school in Brazzaville, Congo. We have the approval to build and now require funding to begin the construction/planning process. We anticipate launching the planning process by late 2015 or early 2016.
Our school will provide the following:
1) An elementary school program for Deaf children that uses the Bilingual Bicultural (BiBi) method
2) A high school program for girls, as well as courses using computer technology, and 3) A 2 year career development program that will offer practical courses in business administration, digital graphics and design, office skills, and medical assistant. These classes will give the young women employable skills and opportunities to work in a career of their choice.
