Everyone has talent and potential but not everyone has access to opportunities. We work to address this gap by partnering with local schools and communities in East Africa to provide youth the educational resources and support they need to reach their full potential. With input from parents, local leaders, and young people themselves, our programs educate and empower youth from communities “off the paved road” and prepare them with life skills and confidence to succeed both in the classroom and beyond.
