About Madonna Mission- Madonna Mission offers a summer Learning in Action (LIA) program which provides a safe and compassionate learning environment for over 80 refugee elementary school children during the summer.  Lack of financial and family resources can make summer a time of isolation for refugee children. At LIA, these students participate in reading, writing, academic projects, arts and culture, outdoor play, field trips and experiential learning.  Children are empowered as they forge friendships, and increase confidence as they build upon their academic year learning during the summer months.
