Supporting education for youth around the world is the ultimate goal for the Nathan Yip Foundation. Every country has its own unique challenges and opportunities. To make the greatest impact with our resources outside of the United States and China, we work with partners who have the experience, knowledge, understanding and means to deliver quality education to those who need it most.
