What do we do?

We build schools! Lots of them...

But why schools? And why education?

We believe that the key to allowing individuals to break the cycle of poverty begins with education. The old saying "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" also applies to education.

Educating people does more than help them in the present, it enables them to help themselves, both now and in the future.

We stress the importance of educating girls as well as boys. In many agrarian economies the limited education that has been available has been offered only to the boys. The girls were expected to stay home and take care of the household, the children and the family's livestock. But if you educate a girl, you've educated a mother. And if you educate a mother, you've educated her children as well.

To educate children you needs schools. Too many places in the world don't have schools, or the ones they have are substandard and unfit for use.

We think we can help fix that.
