BRIGHTER CHILDREN INC

Brighter Children (BC) is a 501c Non-Profit organization.
Our mission is to find and fund local schools in order to give the gift of education to deserving children in some of the most impoverished communities in the world. Our Vision? Universal Primary Education. There are 250 million children today who cannot read, write, or do basic mathematics. Brighter Children currently works with partner schools in impoverished communities across Kenya, India, Colombia, and Honduras. We provide children who otherwise would have no opportunity for primary education or are at risk of dropping out of school with annual scholarships and access to quality education.

Here is a brief video on our visit to Kenya for your enjoyment.
