Strengthening Education and Improving Lives Around the World.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of the poor through education and social and economic development programs. We know that racism has led to disparities in education, health, and life outcomes, and have long focused on social justice in the communities we serve.
What do we do?
We work to increase literacy, ensure girls’ access to education, and reduce child labor and human trafficking by primarily strengthening local partner skills. Our training programs strengthen organizations, community engagement, and help reduce violence through conflict resolution.
How do we do it?
We are leaders in building the skills, talents, and resources of local entities so that they can accomplish their missions. Our programs take into account cultural, linguistic, geographic, and economic contexts, to support local management and promote long-term partnerships among local organizations. We ensure that people around the world have access to learning — regardless of their age, gender, race, or sexual orientation.
