Envision A World Where All Children Have Access to Education

Our Vision & Our Mission

Supporting Education in Rural Communities

Giving Communities Tools for Success

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime — Chinese Proverb

We believe everyone should have access to education. Rural communities are often forgotten and their school districts and children are in serious need. It’s our mission to provide educational support to these underserved students and teachers. By improving educational resources, increasing confidence in a successful future, and instilling a sense of empowerment and ownership, we can make a lasting impact on these communities.

Strengthening Rural Schools

Global Hearts, Local Roots

While education is widely regarded as a universal language, we recognize that rural communities face unique issues.

In the rural communities we serve throughout Colorado and China, we take the time to understand the people, languagescultures, and challenges that shape the landscape. By collaborating with the local communities, we share ownership of our projects to ensure a sustainable and enduring impact.
