Main Programs

School Build

Start: 23/03/2009 - End:

85% of the communities we visit lack basic infrastructure. We believe that a quality learning environment is critical to increasing student attendance, engagement, and overall literacy outcomes—so we build schools to ensure that all of our students have access to a safe and healthy place to learn.

WASH

Start: 01/09/2015 - End:

Through our WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) Program, we provide children with access to clean water, private bathrooms, and good hygiene practices to foster the growth and development of students. We believe that providing safe, clean infrastructure, coupled with knowledge on hygiene behavior is essential for keeping kids healthy, happy, and in school.

Teacher Support

Start: 03/09/2013 - End:

We stand behind the belief that students will perform better if classrooms are led by enthusiastic, inspired, and well-trained teachers. To ensure that our students are receiving a high-quality education, we provide our teachers with training and innovative resources, enhancing the delivery of national curriculum and empowering them to lead dynamic and effective lessons.
