Quality education is a basic human right—yet, children living in poverty and compromised conditions are the least likely to attend and complete school. Millions are not attending school or are struggling to stay in school because they are poor or because they are working the streets—or because they are girls. The challenges in accessing continuous quality education are far and wide for children in foster care, subsidized households, and vulnerable communities. Students in low-income schools often do not have access to the academic tools and competitive programs they need to fully test their potential.
Through our two flagship initiatives, Coloring Futures and Bridging Gaps, Yours Humanly works to provide underprivileged children in underserved communities around the world access to educational programs and resources—pathways to better, brighter futures.
Our most meaningful and impactful international effort is our K-12 Scholarship program, which enables student enrollment of underprivileged children around the world. By partnering with local schools and monitoring progress regularly, we are able to cover the full costs of tuition, uniforms, books, study materials, school supplies, and all other educational needs for students served by Yours Humanly from placement through 12th grade graduation. Literally from the streets to the classroom, we get children out of harm’s way, enroll them in school, and fully support their educational experience through graduation. By giving them a chance to live the educated life they deserve, we are breaking the cycle of poverty for every child enrolled.
We fund and build upon STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) programs to encourage student innovation and critical thinking when learning about real-world problems.
We host literacy programs to promote reading, parent engagement, and opportunities for community involvement in local schools. Internationally, we place English instructors where needed to strengthen bilingual language competencies.
After School and Enrichment Programs
We provide assistance with after school programs to support and reinforce classroom curricula and fund the continuation of extracurricular activities that promote enrichment and well roundedness.
Computers, Internet, and Technology
We fund new computer labs, upgrade existing labs, and provide computer science instructors, where needed, to advance technological literacy.
Books, Backpacks, and School Supplies
We fund the purchase of books, backpacks, school supplies, and other educational materials for individual schools and classrooms to bridge the gap between available resources and need.
We fund basic facility needs that are deemed necessary to establish and maintain safe and effective learning environments.
