about the initiative

Today there is a significant divide between the growing – up experiences of children based on their background they come from and the type of school they go to. We are addressing this divide through our Education and Youth Intervention Model. Our model addresses every aspect from – schooling, sports, personality development, vocational training and building community support networks. We believe this model can be implemented across countries facing education disparities, to bring a more equitable experience for children and youth around the world.
