The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “everyone has the right to an education.” Unfortunately, education is still a distant dream for many. Nearly 113 million children are not able to attend primary school. And 264 million children who might be attending secondary schools (the equivalent of high schools) do not. Around one billion adults lack one of the most basic skills taught in schools – literacy.
Every child deserves a chance to learn and become an educated member of society. Education is of utmost importance in helping solve many of the world’s ills including poverty, human trafficking, and health issues such as AIDS and malaria. Children have a better chance of learning if they don’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, how to pay for school tuition, who is going to provide for their shelter, their school uniforms, their healthcare. We help organizations by providing funds for unmet needs so that children can feel secure in their quest for an education.
Our mission is to make a long-term impact on global poverty by supporting projects in developing countries that empower young people to get an education and achieve a sustainable livelihood.
Our vision is a world in which every child has an opportunity to get an education.
