"School the World" INITIATIVE
Creating Lasting Change: School the World is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded on the belief that empowerment begins with education. Our goal is to provide access for quality education to those living in the rural villages of Central America. Together with local governments, our partners and deeply engaged parents, we provide young children living in the poorest communities the opportunity to learn so that they can work towards a brighter future.
Founded in 2009, School the World broke ground at its first school in Guatemala. Since then, we have built 45 primary schools, trained 201 teachers and enrolled over 5,000 students in Honduras and Guatemala.
School the World is one of the first NGOs to mandate community partnership. They require municipality to contribute 50% of the costs and the community must contribute land and unskilled labor. We also require the parents to participate in parent education programs; even our supply chain of books and supplies depend on partial parental contribution. Our goals is to expand to other developing countries and replicate the model of success we have witnessed in the last 6 years to bring about change through education.
"Shanti Children’s Foundation" INITIATIVE
For almost twenty years Shanti Children’s Foundation has been educating needy children in Nepal through individual sponsorships. At a time when there is so much bad news in our world, these children are a ray of light. For a small investment annually, one can bring hope into their lives and the possibility of a brighter future. For less than $900 a year SCF can house, feed, clothe, and educate a child who would not otherwise have access to these things. Education gives them survival tools as they step into the modern world. It keeps them safe from trafficking and other forms of abuse. Over time, increased literacy will also help lay the groundwork for a more stable Nepal.
"Bali Institute for Global Renewal" INITIATIVE
