Nurture Potential

Providing marginalized communities with access to education and enterprise opportunities: two areas that have the power to ignite sustainable change in the lives of our beneficiaries and those around them.

Investing in long-term change.

Since 2009, we've witnessed the magnitude of helping people defy their limitations and achieve their full potential.  Children are becoming the first in their families to graduate high school and college, and are uplifting their communities along the way. Women are learning how to read, sew, and create in order to support their and their children's dreams. Parents are gaining the tools they need to manage their families' health, finances, nutrition, and futures. This is what lifelong change looks like.

Why education and enterprise?

Lack of education and gender gaps in the worldwide labor force prevents economic and social development in some of the most disenfranchised parts of our world.


617 million

youth worldwide lack basic mathematics and literacy skills.

773 million

adults around the world—two-thirds of whom are women—are illiterate.

75 percent

of women in developing areas are not guaranteed legal rights or protection at work.

700 million

fewer women than men are employed globally, and those who are earn 24% less.
