Our focus is to work in coordination with them to improve their existing programs in order to provide a higher quality of living for the children within the care while also providing those children and opportunity to overcome the circumstances they were born into.

We want them to focus on what they do best, which is caring for the children.

The Impact of Education

A quality education can lead to:

Within the world exists a population of children that come from adverse and underprivileged backgrounds. Statistically speaking, their chances of breaking out of their economic status is slim due to the variety barriers that make advancement difficult. In addition to that, the charitable entities & systems that are in place to support them are over burdened, further diminishing the level of care provided.

Ensuring that the foundation for education exists so that it can be fully taken advantage of. A child cannot learn as effectively if they're hungry.

 Becoming a source of guidance will play a pivotal role in their development and identity.

STEM is a strong field and something we encourage the pursuit of in addition to a well rounded education.

 By fostering a sense of success early on, we can nurture their confidence and help them understand their potential.

Higher education is another key to breaking the poverty cycle.

What We Do

Heading 1

Sustainability and self sufficiency are key. We approach and vet groups that are already supporting children in various capacities and work with them to identify opportunities to improve or expand.

Learning & Evaluation

Education is the most cost efficient and sustainable way to break out of poverty. To simply educate is not enough and we must identify and evaluate the impact it has in order to continuously improve for the betterment of their future.

Metrics are key to understanding our impact and the driving force for decisions made. We are looking for results that meet our desired outcomes, not just executing a curriculum. It is our belief that by taking this approach, we can provide an opportunity for these kids to catch up in society.
