Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Develop flourishing Godly nations by effecting 360 degree transformation of children, families and communities by coming alongside school proprietors of low-fee independent schools.

We provide at least one of these three key resources to our partner schools:
1. Training of school leaders and teachers to develop Christ-like character in students and school leaders to manage and grow their schools effectively.
2. Loan capital to expand and improve school facilities
3. Education technology to enhance learning outcomes and employability

To execute our strategy we primarily we partner with local organizations to leverage their particular expertise. We currently are working with over 40 training and local lending organizations across the 11 countries we serve.

We have cumulatively impacted 5,905 schools with an annual enrollment of 1,589,751 students in 11 countries through a holistic array of program services. We also have trained 16,829 school leaders and 21,526 teachers. Through our local lending partners we have provided 4,457 loans to build new classrooms, expand and improve buildings, and equip computer and science labs (all numbers as of March 31, 2020).
