Our focus is developing and delivering innovative education projects serving orphans, at-risk, and vulnerable children in the most impoverished, under-served locations. We're committed to guiding these projects to become models for change.

Programs

By serving as a collaborative platform, Mothering Across Continents has been able to launch and grow innovative projects in 10 countries. We have served over 6,000 children, engaged 400+ volunteers, educated 10,000 U.S. students about global issues and raised 1.5 million since inception for our projects. A few of our program accomplishments include: 1) We developed the first merit school program for Mwiko Primary School - an impoverished school in Rwanda which serves children and families effected by genocide. 2) We built the first permanent primary school in Unity State South Sudan where only 1 in 10 have access to education and 90% of adults can't read. 3) We introduced the first technology- focused vocational and lifestyle training program for young women in rural northern Haiti. 4) We developed the first sustainable early-childhood development center in a community of Kwa-Zula Natal in South Africa. 5) We developed the innovative program "The Global Class," which is provided to schools and community groups in the US in the forms of experiential learning and extracurricular activities. An outgrowth of The Global Class is the "Any1Can Project," designed to empower youth and engage communities in an appreciation of global diversity and service through arts-based experiences. More details about all of our programs will be included in the "Programs Materials" section of the application.
