Summer in the city can be brutal, but just imagine how much more challenging it can be when you live in the middle of Houston’s hub for prostitution and human trafficking in Southwest Houston. Now imagine you’re a kid in that environment.
That’s where Bee Busy, Inc., comes in. It’s a neighborhood nonprofit that provides FREE HIV Testing, Sexual Health Education and a FREE Summer Camp for kids in the community (now in its third year).
This year, Bee Busy is making the summer program bigger and better than ever, adding an extra week of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education, focusing on health and wellness through healthy eating, yoga and meditation, and teaching the kids about financial literacy, art and so much more. Bee Busy’s goal is to equip the children with the knowledge they need to have a brighter future.
In a part of town that is often ignored or avoided, Bee Busy is making sure that these kids aren’t. That’s why they are actively seeking donations to give these kids a summer experience they’ll never forget.
To that end, Bee Busy provides:
- Educational Activities: They want to empower kids with the tools and knowledge they need to reach a brighter future. That’s why they provide lessons on topics like financial literacy, STEM, and college readiness.
- Field trips: They take the children on field trips that broaden their horizons like the Ensemble Theatre, The Houston Zoo and the Health Museum.
- Hot Meals: Instead of handing out bagged lunches to our kids, Bee Busy provides a fresh, hot lunch for them every day of the camp.
