Why we exist
Every child has a right to education, we seek to ensure that.
It is the foundation of understanding and enables children to have choices about their lives and the lives of their communities. This knowledge empowers people to improve their lives and the lives of each other. In communities living in poverty, it empowers people to grow out of the cycle of poverty and elevate into wellbeing.
Throughout the world, particularly in remote regions, children have little to no access.
It is our mission to enable access to education for every child in the world.
