Letter from the Director
The REAP Foundation was created with the intention of giving back some of what the agricultural community has provided our farming family.
There have been huge changes in our part of rural California as a result of unprecedented immigration to this community from abroad. The agricultural industry has flourished as a result of this immigration, but many of our rural communities have suffered from a lack of adequate educational services to meet the new needs.
The agricultural industry has attracted many talented, hard-working immigrants seeking the promise of rewards for hard work. Unfortunately, many families are unable to see the pathway to educational advancement and success through education. The REAP Foundation was formed to help the rural immigrant community see the pathway to success through achievement in education.
REAP is proud to support the Lindsay School District in this common goal. We are committed to help show learners the pathway to success in America; REAP hopes to cultivate and encourage leaders in our community, spreading the hope for advancement that has been the history of immigrants in America.
The REAP Foundation’s programs were designed to provide assistance to students who have few university-graduate role modes; giving students the support they need to believe in the promise of education and professional success. REAP programs have a dual purpose: to help individual students set and achieve high goals and see hope in their futures, and to encourage a college-going culture throughout the Lindsay community.
Thank you for your interest,
