Nonprofit gets $1,000 grant to help refugees

Teach By Tech offers free 9-week class in Denver area

An Arvada based nonprofit has been awarded a $1,000 grant to help provide financial literacy training to refugees in the Denver area.

Teach By Tech and its founder Linnie Pawlek received the award from The Pollination Project, a nonprofit foundation that gives $1,000 a day to individual change-makers and activists worldwide.

“Thank you, Pollination Project, for believing in the mission of Teach By Tech and the impact we can have on the refugee community in Colorado,” Pawlek said in a news release. “This grant will help provide free 9-week financial literacy courses to refugees in the Denver metro area. We work with local partners, Project Worthmore and Hope Communities, to identify refugee needs and organize classes.”

Teach By Tech was founded to empower vulnerable populations, especially women and girls, by using technology to increase their accessibility to education, according to the news release.

The nonprofit uses a hybrid model of education that allows participants a greater opportunity to attend classes and learn concepts. Its goal is to equip the underserved with the resources they need to attain economic empowerment and realize self-sufficiency, the news release said.

The Pollination Project gives seed grants to projects that benefit people, the planet, and animals in areas like environmental sustainability, social justice, community health and wellness, arts, and education, according to the release.
