DEC 30
BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE FOR OUR CHILDREN.

Around 2.34 billion children live with some form of pandemic-related movement restrictions and 1.4 billion children live in countries with full or partial lockdowns.

Past crises have shown children often suffer disproportionately and the pandemic has widened already existing inequities. Children in the poorest countries, girls, and children with disabilities may be disproportionately affected.

2020 has been a tumultuous year in so many unprecedented ways:

We have lost loved ones, our businesses have gone bankrupt, we have forgotten what it feels like to travel and be close to one another.

We thought that this pandemic would be long gone by now, and yet here we are, still in the dark without a sense of what 2021 will look like.

While we do not discount all the heartaches and challenges that we have encountered this past year, we choose to embrace the bright side and appreciate all the lessons we have learned, the new people who have come into our lives, and all the little things we’ve discovered along the way that we never took the time to notice or pay attention to before.

And although we have no set plan for 2021, we hold on to the Hope inside us, the belief that things will get better and that together, knowing what we now know and building on these experiences, we will defeat this horrific pandemic, and come out stronger on the other side.

Joining hands with the ANDREA BOCELLI Foundation already very active in supporting children across Haiti and Italy, the BERVANN Foundation commits to support Children in education, health and creativity across the US and Africa.  

Celebrating Love,
Spreading Hope,
Creating Opportunities.

42% of households with young children anticipate having difficulty paying for basic needs. Black (59%), Latinos (61%), and single-parent households with young children (60%) have the highest rates of anticipated difficulty in paying for basic needs.

Two-thirds of households with young children living at below 150% (about $36,000 for a family of 4 with 2 children) of the poverty line have difficulty of paying for basic needs. One-third of middle and upper-income households with young children have trouble paying for basic needs.
