Educate and Empower Girls in Rural Mexico
Children, young people and specifically girls become excluded and struggle to achieve optimal development because of social and economic inequality in Mexico.

Help Russian orphans get education & socialize
There are over 470,000 orphans in Russia. The majority of orphanage graduates is unable to successfully integrate into society. For 16 years "Big Change" helps young people from orphanages who have the most difficulties after graduating the system to settle well in life, to find a job, a home, a family. We have done this by developing motivation to learn and skills essential for independent living, helping them get better education and expanding the range of their interests.
Help to tackle early school failure
In France, studies have shown that 20% of the children can't read well enough at the age of 8, explaining their school failure on the long run.

Mission to Mars! Engaging young people in STEM
We ensure more young people from diverse backgrounds enter higher education, in particular attend the best universities, to study science, tech, maths and engineering - much needed skills for the UK economy. Our sessions, such as 'Mission to Mars', demonstrate how STEM subjects are applied to solve real world (and out of this world!) issues. These sessions engage and motivate young people, which we follow up with practical support and academic tutoring to ensure potential is fulfilled!
Help 30 Russian kids with hearing loss communicate
The earlier a child with hearing impairment receives help, the more likely it is that they will learn to communicate verbally. Our deaf club is the only place in St Petersburg which helps babies as young as 4 months. Just as importantly, their parents are supported as they come to terms with their child's disability and learn how to lobby for treatment and education for their child. As a result many of "our" children go on to join mainstream kindergartens.
BRIDGE - Give Disadvantaged Kids a Chance, Hungary
Our foundation, like a well built bridge is trying to help the kids to be able to run their life which is especially convoluted for them. Within the project there are more smaller goals, like the bridge building blocks, all contribute to make the whole structure strong and stable. The children need to have a strong support to overcome obstacles. A) BRIDGE between the children and their families B) BRIDGE between children and society C) BRIDGE between the present and the future of children
Fund 1000 Scholarships in Rural China for a Year
Some 200 million rural Chinese live below the poverty line by the World Bank definition of $1.25 per day, implying that 40 million school-aged children are at risk of dropping out of school before their high school graduation. In order to combat this huge waste of human capital, the SOAR Foundation, for the past 20 years, has provided 26,600 merit-based scholarships to more than 8,000 impoverished yet gifted students across rural China to finish high school and achieve success thereafter.
