Help us during these challenging times!

Will you help us fundraise during these incredibly challenging times?

We need all the help we can get during this crisis! Costs but no income.

  • Our Center had to be closed to our trainees and campers. They had to go back to their villages!
  • Our popular learning camps have been canceled and schools are closed. Volunteers cannot volunteer.

We however prepare for our trainees to come back and campers to join camps! We need to make our Center ready to receive trainees, campers and volunteers too. Now we are also considering and discuss how to run virtual camps with virtual volunteers!

Young people really long to learn again with volunteers and us! Many small donations or larger ones, will help!

GlobalGiving, the well-known and leading fundraising organization for vetted, recognized NGOs, nonprofits, has given us an important platform from which to fundraise!

We believe knowledge and skills are the keys to ending poverty!

We empower disadvantaged people at our Training Center, our Learning Camps and in our field projects. English and IT skills are gateways to a better life. Our innovative education, learning by doing style transforms young students from memorizers to independent learners.

With limited means, we have helped 2500 campers in 68 camps, 365 long-term trainees and trained over 2000 volunteers.

We are currently fundraising to prepare and run three Learning Camps for about 165 participants (campers, leaders and teachers) and prepare 25 trainees as camp leaders.
