|Samenvatting||Every child has the right to grow, learn and thrive in an environment that is safe, nurturing and stimulating. For poor American children such opportunities are limited; despite America’s affluence, poverty continues to exist in many of its communities, both rural and urban. America’s overall poverty rate is 12.5 percent; and at 17 percent, the fastest growing poverty group is children. With 17.9 percent of the state’s population living in poverty, Mississippi is the third poorest state in America, and the Delta is Mississippi’s poorest region. The Mississippi Delta Children’s Partnership (MDCP) is a community-based programme focused on children and families. The concept of ‘partnership’ is central to what we do – building a reciprocal partnership between schools, parents and communities.|
