OUR VISION

Equal access to knowledge for all

OUR MISSION

We aim to bring together the expertise and resources of companies with a commitment to improving educational infrastructure for underprivileged children in the Global South. Education is key to break the cycle of poverty and unmet potential. We believe companies can make a difference and that together we can achieve so much more.

FOUNDATION AS A SERVICE

We link people and companies in the tech industry with the interest to do something valuable for society with school projects in various countries that are in need of funding. Our implementing partners on the ground are experts in their field, developing holistic projects with long-term plans according to the need of a specific community. We choose projects which plan the construction of new schools and the renovation and expansion of existing ones to provide a safe and appropriate learning environment for children around the world. Through the implementation of educational technologies, we aim to improve access to knowledge and quality education for generations of children.

We work globally because the need for adequate education is not confined to a specific area but reaches people internationally. This broad approach allows us to match companies with projects that suit their expertise, language skills, and areas of interest.

Link people and companies in the tech industry with sustainable school projects worldwide.

WIN-WIN SITUATION

Purpose

Most people have the need to make a difference in the world. Giving children a chance to help themselves through education will bring long-term change.  A lasting good deed of which one can be proud.

Company

Motivation

A company that stands up for underprivileged children creates purposeful impact which leads to team spirit and motivation among its employees and partners.

Differentiation

Everyday life in a company is stressful, not everyone thinks about giving something back to society. To finance a school means taking responisbility for the greater good and leads to recognition in the industry.

Suitable Learning Environment

Appropriate classrooms, sufficient light and temperature insulation and  sanitary facilities are essential for children to learn. Only through education can the cycle of poverty be broken.

Children

Safety/Security

Schools are often more than just a place of learning. Especially for children living in poverty they are a place of security and ease. A place to break through the hard daily routine.

State Support

In many low-income countries, the state only supports schools once a finished building is available. The number of teachers is measured by the number of classrooms. State recognition of the school is essential for its sustainability.

Our strategy follows the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals:

Expertise

companies often offer a new perspective and the partnership can be a long-term enrichment for school and the children.
