  • Monthly support
  • Sponsor a child (see our designated page for more details)
  • The Salama Institute depends 100% on charitable contributions for direct costs: this includes high quality teaching staff, curriculum, transportation, and food.

    We invest 750 hours in each child per year. As a result of this investment, we currently have more than 30 students in colleges all over the country- from Vanderbilt University to Berklee College of Music in Boston.

    Why Give?

    Nationwide, low-income students are more than twice as likely to drop out as middle-income students and more than 10 times as likely as high-income students. (Salama has a 100% high school graduation rate and a 100% college and vocational training rate.)

    A recent report showed that there are more than 3,000 gang related arrests every year in Nashville. (Salama keeps kids away from a peak recruitment time for gangs every day.)

    More than 70% of Metro Nashville students receive school lunch aid, a key indicator of poverty. (Salama provides a hot meal every day.)
