Canadian Youth Can Make a Difference

A matching funds initiative has been set up to motivate Canadian youth.  With every $1 that is raised through Canadian classrooms or youth groups, the Karen and Fred Green Foundation will match that donation by $3 for up to $8250 in youth driven fundraising before January 1st, 2016. 

With a little over $2500 left to raise before December 2015, our goal is to find 25 classes or youth groups who are committed to raise $100 each.  This would create a ripple effect enabling dedicated East African students to attend school.

Education has the power to change everything… Just imagine being born into East Africa where the average person earns $1.75 per day yet must pay $450 for one year of public high school or $2000 for one year of public university.  So what happens if you are dedicated to create a better world but you are not born with the privilege to gain a higher level education? The answer is simple:  Lack of opportunity equals the lack of ability to make changes that our world needs  

Please help our East African students continue to study, develop confidence and have a chance at a better future for their families and communities.

Consider Donating Now

Please help keep our students in school for the September 2015 East African semester.

 Mission of Education is Power: 

“Through education, we are dedicated to develop the potential in disadvantaged East Africans who are committed to the sustainable development and natural conservation of Africa”. We achieve this by providing education opportunities to East Africans at East African secondary and post-secondary institutions – as well as by supporting African primary and secondary teachers to mentor their students to give back to their communities. (Français) (Español)
