Funding Focus

The majority of Doc Wayne’s students are young people of colour and come from low-income households. Many have been exposed to or are survivors of abuse, community violence, and chronic trauma.

Their $10,000 grant will contribute to the operating costs of Doc Wayne, enabling them to strengthen their capacity to support more students through the Chalk Talk programme.
