Our Mission

JESSRAN CORPORATION'S mission is to reduce poverty's effect on communities through academic, economic, cognitive and social support programs. We envision a world in which poverty's negative and perpetual effects are eliminated.

Led by the visionary Eric Harris, E2P is not just another academic initiative. It's a powerful force for change, ensuring that every child, starting from the tender age of 2, has access to quality education and the financial resources necessary to thrive.

But we can't do it alone.

We need YOUR support to continue providing life-changing opportunities to children and families in our community.

Academic Support

Our academic efforts will focus on early childhood education. Equitable educational practice during children's most impressionable ages will equate to a more successful experience in grades PreK-12.

Economic Support

Testimonials

"JessRan is doing GREAT WORK. My 3 year old is enrolled and when I say he is learning on a higher level, his communication and vocabulary for his age is phenomenal. He will be kindergarten ready and at the learning rate he's moving in he could possibly test out.
