Our vision is to enable every child to go to school and achieve the level of education they desire.
Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty before it is transferred to yet another generation, by building more educated and productive communities.
BELIEFS & APPROACH
There is a correlation between a community's quality of life, ability to address basic human needs and achieve transformation. We believe education is the key link.
We see our role as "bridge builders" between the kids, communities and donors. We encourage the communities to make our program their own and we empower them to raise their voices and tell their own stories.
I have been following the wonderful work that this organization is doing. I would love to go to Granada Nicaragua and work with the children there. wonderful things are happening and it certainly is a feel good moment for volunteer and students.
