Across the Globe Children's Foundation

Education

250 million children around the world can't read and write.

Education is an essential human right. Education is a cure for many of the traps that continue a cycle of poverty. In too many areas of the world, a lack of resources keeps children from even a basic education.

You can help uphold every child’s right to an education by joining Across the Globe Children's Foundation (ATGCF) to support projects under our Education initiative. We work with several organizations that build schools and libraries, and that train teachers where there is significant and urgent need. 

Investing in children everywhere is investing in our future.
