Educational expenses prevent many students in developing countries from achieving an education. This project will empower students, specifically students aspiring to become engineers, in Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America to achieve an education. 100% of funds raised go directly toward supporting students' educational expenses.
In the developing world, school expenses keep 71 million young people from continuing their education and achieving their potential (Source: United Nations).
The School Fund meets a crucial funding gap for students. We partner with in-country NGOs working directly with students who, due to financial need, could not otherwise attend school. With access to education, these children can improve their lives and have a positive impact on their communities. We ensure that all financials are transparent and that 100% of funds go directly to students' school fees.
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). This project will enable 50 students to achieve an education and enable them to build better lives for themselves and their families.
