Where we work:
LESVOS, GREECE: We partner with non-government organizations (NGOs) to support the provision of educational activities to families, adults, and children awaiting asylum on the island of Lesvos. To date our programs have included school readiness and early intervention for community-based family educational activities. In partnership with EuroRelief and in cooperation with other NGOs, we design and deliver educational programs inside of the newly constructed camp on Lesvos to address the educational and recreational needs of children in the camp.

KORAH, ETHIOPIA: We partner with our TeachBeyond sister program, Open Schools Worldwide, and with Glimmer for Street Kids and Brook Hills Development Organization, to provide a safe learning space and a bilingual bridging education program to children who have previously never been to school and live and scavenge on the city trash dump. The program is offered five days a week during school hours, provides children with two nutritious meals, includes art and play, and facilitates healing through trauma-informed practices and loving relationships. We seek to build local capacity through facilitating ongoing education opportunities, EFL classes, and workplace training with our local partners. Our focus is on supporting our Ethiopian partners in our shared vision for transformation. (Find out how you can serve)
