  • We're only two weeks away from #givingtuesday! Meet Tajaiha - a bubbly six year old. Her attitude toward school, learning nand homework is far different this year than it was last fall, when she started coming to The Learning Lamp's free After School Program. That change was made possible through the generosity of people like you! #thelearninglamp
