Our Vision Transform all lives that touch these projects, changing the way that we see ourselves in the world, creating leaders in the community and developing villages by uplifting the lives of others. Our Motto 1,000 Schools and 1,000,000 Lives.


Building Education is a For-Purpose Organization 501(c)3 that provides funding for education in developing countries in efforts to end poverty.

In collaboration with the government, partner organizations and local schools we aim to transform rural villages into prosperous, dignified communities.

We believe in a world where every child has an equal opportunity to education.

Leaders create leaders. We help villagers to attain self-realization through relevant skills and better employment prospects. With our mentorship, beneficiaries participate in vocational training and awareness programs. They feel empowered to change their lives by starting sustainable social enterprises.

Our focus is to revolutionize through sustainability.
We work in rural villages to create hubs that include schools, farmers’ markets, healthcare and resource centers. This provides rural communities better living through access to water and clean energy.
