We are doing the right thing, at the right time

Like the world-changers who support our organization, we are focused on making a long-term impact by helping kids living in poverty. We have a bold vision: graduating healthy, educated, empowered and employed young adults from our program.

The students supported by our programs face major barriers to accessing education; many are orphaned, living in extreme poverty or dealing with other difficult family circumstances.

What makes us diferent?

Community centers

We’ve built 80 centers globally. There, kids get access to education centers, medical offices, libraries, playgrounds and more.

Data-driven approach

We track measurable progress with a research agency to prove we’re making a real impact on our kids.


Programs change by age and country to ensure that our kids graduate healthy, educated, empowered, and employed.
