Mission Statement: We Are a Global Education Organization. We build schools and provide quality educational programming to increase literacy rates in Ghana, Guatemala, Laos and Nicaragua.

250 million kids around the world can’t read this. Let’s change that.

We fund new schools and provide students with access to clean drinking water, bathrooms, hand washing stations, and inspired teachers.

Every child has promise. You can help them realize it.

250 million children lack basic reading, writing, and math skills.

Education reduces poverty, empowers communities, and unlocks human potential. It is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.

Together we’re creating a future where all children have a chance to succeed.
