We believe that, given the tools and skills necessary to compete in the 21st century, children of limited means can do as well as graduates of the world’s best schools.
The foundation has dedicated itself to creating an education model that can be replicated so that primary and secondary students in Colombia and elsewhere, no matter their race, gender or economic background, can compete globally and make a positive contribution to the world.
In Colombia, we are helping children form a cutting-edge geek squad to service computers in our schools.
We aim to encourage communities’ sense of ownership, beginning with public-private partnerships to fund the schools and projects. Our ideal formula is to obtain 40 percent of our financing from the national, regional or local government, 30 percent from private in-country funds, and 30 percent donated from the US.
We are already recognized nationally in Colombia for our innovative education programs.
