We’re celebrating 45 years by introducing you to Inspiring Voices like Peng Her’s, who co-founded the Hmong Language and Cultural Enrichment Program (HLCEP). Peng’s work with Hmong students in the Madison community instills a sense of cultural resiliency and confidence into the youth he encounters, allowing them to succeed academically. With their immigrant experience guiding them and HLCEP participants’ positive test results proving their program’s transformative ability, Peng and his wife and co-founder, Mai Zong, are re-imagining education in an extraordinary way. Give to HLCEP now and your gift can be matched by supporters. Read more, and find out how to support Peng—who “not only survived, [but] flourished” in the United States, and who ensures that Hmong youth in Wisconsin will do the same.
