Eliminating Poverty Through Education

Find out how supporting one student has the power to change a whole community.

Mariefe, Dom, Kristen and Nancy have just taken one of the most significant steps in their lives, and it wouldn’t have been possible without people who have chosen to give them a chance at an education.

And even as they reach for their dreams, they’re thinking about giving back.

Want to start a ripple of change in a community? You can donate, partner or mentor through Akaraka, which helps underprivileged youth in the Philippines, Cambodia and Singapore through education, @ http://www.akaraka.org.sg/.
