Educate Future Engineers in High-Poverty Countries



Tuition in the world's neediest regions prevents students from going to secondary school. The School Fund ( provides an innovative funding and communication platform for students with high need and academic merit in 15 countries. 100% of funds raised on TSF support student fees, like those of aspiring engineers Willie Etienne in Haiti, Moses Otieno in Kenya and Rajkumar Magar in Nepal.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In the developing world, school fees of about $150 per year keep 71 million young people from continuing their education and achieving their potential. (Source: United Nations)

How will this project solve this problem?

The School Fund meets a crucial funding gap for students. We partner with in-country organizations working directly with bright, committed students who, due to financial need, could not otherwise attend school. These students are at a crucial crossroads in their lives, and the opportunity afforded by this support is undeniable. We ensure that all financials are transparent and that 100% of funds go directly to students' school fees.

Potential Long Term Impact

Education is the single strongest lever with which individuals can pull themselves and their families out of poverty. On average, there is a 10% increase in earning capacity for every year of school completed in low-income countries where people earn a dollar a day or less (Source: UNESCO). The School Fund enables children to maximize this opportunity and their potential. To date, The School Fund has supported over 650 years of education.
