ABOUT THE CHARITY
Established in 2015, this NGO’s mission is to empower students in developing countries by using a three-pronged approach that focuses on: increased access to education, creating academic partnerships and curriculum development between both local and international schools and their respective communities, as well as helping to provide sustainable and adequate nutrition for their partnered beneficiaries based on Community Supported Agriculture.

PROJECT DETAILS
Working at three different project sites and partnered schools in the region, this Project will involve documenting the difficulties students face in accessing education as well as documenting the Organization as they monitor and evaluate their work in the field (both within the school as well as the community).
