Help educate children in developing countries

Our Mission and Guiding Principles

Our Mission

Our mission is to give potential students opportunities to learn that they would otherwise not have.

We view education as a preparation for life and believe strongly in both vocational and academic training. The chance to learn enables individuals to improve both their lives as well as the lives of those around them.

We in developed countries with welfare support systems often take education for granted. In under-developed countries, having the knowledge and skills to make a living can be a matter of life and death. It is humbling to see the lengths many students will go to just to attend school.

However, too many are unable to do so. Even now, over 100 million children have no access to formal education. Through your donations we seek to make a real difference for as many as possible.

All our admin and support costs are already covered by specific pledges so you can know 100% of your donations will be used to give a chance to those who wish to help themselves, their families, and their communities.

With your support, we can give underprivileged children opportunities for a brighter future. Our hope is that these students will develop into role models who will follow the same principles to help those less fortunate than themselves.

Please join us in this mission.
