Nothing looks more clearly toward the future than education. And nothing else has education’s power to transform lives. For Nepali children, Sherpas, and village girls at risk to traffickers —for any child facing daunting odds because of caste, gender, disability or poverty—education offers a path forward to opportunity and hope, and the freedom to make choices in a world that will almost certainly be very different from their parents’.

Our mission is to erase the obstacles that keep kids from going to school. A school might be too damaged or small: build classrooms. Tuition could be too high: provide a scholarship. A child may live too far away: arrange for boarding. Even help with school supplies and uniforms can be essential to allow students to succeed. And when they do, we all win.
