We are Humans for Education.
Millions of children worldwide do not have access to education. Our unique programs help schools become provide proper sanitation and become financially independent so they can focus on providing the highest quality of education for their students. Empowerment of the community to take their lives into their own hands is what makes Humans for Education so remarkable.
A huge financial drain on schools is the money they spend on health care. We realized that many students were suffering from easily preventable diseases like diarrhea. We have researched a way to cut spending and save 53% of lives with simple solutions.
Many children in the areas where we work are unable to attend school due to financial constraints. To help schools achieve financial independence and allow more of the poorest children to go to school we offer scholarships for students in need.
Many of our partner schools have immediate needs that fall outside of the three categories listed, such as a new kitchen with ventilation. Humans for Education helps schools get off the ground running with their new business by helping them complete certain projects that are immediately needed by the schools.
Partnerships make a difference. Make a Difference Today.
Our programs have had great success, but hear about it directly from the mouth of our community members and from raw data that we collect each and every day. We are data-driven to ensure that your dollars really make a difference.
