DirectConnect provides assistance to children so that they may attend school or participate in educational opportunities. We provide school uniforms and tuition if required, and basic school supplies such as paper, pencils, backpacks and other small items.

We provide equipment such as hearing devices and computers to help children with disabilities, and special programs designed for them that aid in learning.

We also help with material support to schools such as tables, chairs, and chalkboards. We also provide educational opportunities for educators (teachers and administrators) to attend seminars and continuing education programs that can aid them in developing their own programs that they can use in their local school districts.
