We believe in creating opportunity through access to education
We rely on establishing partnerships with community leaders to identify the needs of vulnerable families.
Sponsorship offers meaningful intervention that raises a child’s self-esteem and aspirations, creating lasting educational and economic opportunities that positively alter the outcome of a child’s life
Enhance the quality of education for children by covering school related expenses such as tuition fees, uniforms, shoes, textbooks, as well as afterschool tutoring support. Paying for these school supplies and resources reduces inequality in accessing education and empowers children when they attend school
Provide children with nutritional food to maintain mental, social, and emotional wellbeing. Ensuring healthy diets strengthens educational outcomes within the classroom and decreases absenteeism
Offer social support by creating a meaningful connection with your child. Learn about your child, their community, and educational goals to boost their confidence and drive. Children are also connected with a local network of supports to assist them through their journey, including staff, alumni, and other mentors.
