World War E

Overview

The U.S. Education Secretary, Arne Duncan said it best, "I believe that education is the civil rights issue of our generation. And if you care about promoting opportunity and reducing inequality and social injustice, the classroom is the place to start."

The Lisa Lopes Foundation(LLF) and Innovative Approaches, LLC (IA). (education consulting), have teamed up to take on what has been called, “The Civil Rights cause of our time.” Recent data, current trends in education, and most experts will agree, there is an urgent need to implement more programs to keep children excited about education.

Mission

The Lisa Lopes Foundation, Inc. (LLF) and Innovative Approaches, LLC. are dedicated to exposing youth from low income communities and diverse cultural backgrounds with innovative programs, songs and resources to increase motivation and strengthen their desire to stay in school.

Our Plan

Our goal is to combine music and various aspects of Cultural with motivational and educational lyrics to start a movement known as “World War E” (formerly the EduTainment Movement), focusing on our first project, “The New KnERDS” (Knowledgeable, Educated, Relentlessly, Driven, Scholars) an educational, motivational music group consisting of students in grades 4th-6th.
•The primary goal for this movement and the KnERDS is to increase awareness about current social issues and trends children are facing in today’s classrooms.
•Lack of motivation is a major contributing factor to the high drop out rates in low-income and high minority communities.

Our Plan for Atlanta

World War “E” (E=Education)- • The World War “E” is designed to intertwine children from all walks of life with the some of the hottest influences of hip hop in an effort to mold future leaders motivating students to develop a true love and appreciation of learning through the universal language of Music… This project allows us to combine love of learning, music, children, and life to create the best educational opportunities for ALL children...not just those who can afford it! Lisa's legacy will live L.I.V.E. on for years to come through the World War “E” and the New Kn.E.R.D.S.!
