Students with financial and educational needs in Sterling now have a safe place to go after school to work on homework, get tutoring and learn from mentors.
Last week INMED Family and Youth Opportunity Center in Sterling opened its doors for its first after-school program. The international organization has provided programs to battle poverty for nearly 30 years. Now it is focusing in on the needs of the eastern end of Loudoun County.

DEERFIELD, Ill. – Sept. 24, 2015 – The Mondelēz International Foundation today launched three well-being programs aimed at bringing nutrition education, active play and fresh foods to children and their families in Mexico, South Africa and the United States. This is part of the company’s multi-year, $50 million commitment to promote healthy lifestyles and address obesity. These new programs bring global community partners together in an effort to create school environments that encourage children and families to adopt lifelong healthy habits.
“We’re proud to partner with the Mondelēz International Foundation to prioritize well-being in South African communities and schools,” said Linda Pfeiffer, PhD, President and CEO, INMED Partnerships for Children. “Through our work with the Foundation in Brazil, we’ve seen 65 percent of the children improve their BMI and approximately one-third of these children achieve a normal BMI. In South Africa, we’re hoping to achieve similar results through collaborative partnerships among school administrators, local governments, non-governmental organizations and communities.”
