Filling the Gap and Quality Education for Children
Barriers to education and literacy can prevent children from developing the skills and knowledge they will need to navigate the world. A lack of learning tools and resources, weather-suitable clothing, adequate nutrition, and even parental support can get in the way of this.
By supporting organizations that reduce barriers, we hope that children will have more space to fully focus on education and have a chance to develop a love for learning.
With a particular passion for children, these are some of the organizations we are proud to support.
