Africa School Assistance Project
The Africa School Assistance Project (ASAP) is committed to increasing access to quality public education in East Africa, especially for girls.
Education, more than any other sector of development, seeds dramatic improvement in poverty reduction, gender equality, health outcomes, child immunization, HIV/AIDS prevention, environmental protection and wildlife conservation. Simply put, widely available public education will lead to a prosperous, peaceful and sustainable future for Africa.
To date, ASAP has developed seven rural community schools in the Arusha and Mwanza Regions of Tanzania, impacting over 5,000 students annually and they’re getting huge results. 100% primary completion and transition rates to secondary school and the Kupanda Project for Girls has increased secondary completion rates for girls from a shocking 4% to 100%!

Africa’s Tomorrow is a tax-exempt non-profit organization, registered in the US since 2006. We provide funding to promising female students from rural Africa in order to help them attain higher education when poverty would otherwise prevent them from continuing. We believe that educating the underprivileged is the best investment in the future and provides a catalyst for positive change throughout the world.
While this entire experience benefits many people, the ultimate purpose is to help Africa. The idea is that by providing a great education to students from rural areas of Africa, they will gain the skills and knowledge that will allow them to return home and promote positive changes from within. With roots in the community, they are equipped with the knowledge and connections that will foster efficient and relevant progress, as well as the acumen to prioritize problems and allocate resources, rather than an international organization making those decisions.

Children’s International Summer Villages
CISV is a global organization dedicated to educating and inspiring for peace through building inter-cultural friendship, cooperation and understanding. Founded in 1950, today we are a federation of 69 Member Associations with over 200 Chapters or local groups. In over 60 years we have given countless children and young people the experience of their lives and the opportunity to build lasting friendships through our international educational programs.
Our innovative, fun, non-formal peace education ‘learning by doing’ programs begin with our original and unique Village program for eleven-year-olds. We offer an exciting blend of seven international camp-based, family exchange and local community programs. We aim to help our participants develop the skills they need to become informed, responsible and active global citizens and make a difference in their communities and the world. At the heart of all of our programs is friendship, in line with our founding belief that peace is possible through friendship and mutual understanding.
Our mission is to create extraordinary experiences that champion the wonder and joy of childhood. Our Museum exists to support children and the adults who love and teach them, to make sense of the world, to integrate new information with prior knowledge and organize it into meaningful understandings.
Building on what we know about play and its potential to enhance a child’s development, the Museum’s exhibits are rich with open-ended materials and opportunities for children to create, invent, solve problems and tell their own stories. Our goal is to create a space that acknowledges, celebrates and extends the wealth of abilities and potential that young children possess.
Come Let’s dance
Over the course of history, children have never been immune to the impacts of poverty, conflict and corrupt leadership. When the foundation of community is shaken, children are often the most vulnerable as families struggle to find stability. In this next chapter of our efforts in Uganda, we will focus primarily on seeing the most vulnerable of our friends receive the most basic of tools to success in life: an education.
Denver Museum of Natural History
The Denver Museum of Nature & Science has become a renowned museum because of the tireless commitment of its staff, volunteers, members, donors, guests, and the citizens of Colorado, fulfilling our founders’ dream of creating “one of the great entertaining and educational institutions of the country."
Active science takes place at the Museum every day. Our curators, collections managers, archivists, conservators, librarians, researchers, and lab assistants—along with 600 volunteers—are not only responsible for conducting research but also creating opportunities for citizens to become actively involved in science. The education staff creates compelling programs and experiences for millions of guests and schoolchildren that inspire a passion for exploring and understanding our natural and cultural world.
Through both, the AZA and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), Denver Zoo is working with other zoos and aquariums to promote awareness about threats to biodiversity worldwide through onsite education.
Denver Zoo is a leader in connecting people to the awe and importance of wild animals while providing unparalleled care, educational experiences, and local and global conservation efforts that help save wild places and wildlife. Our more than 350 employees and 600 volunteers passionately support our mission everyday: Secure a Better World for Animals Through Human Understanding. We invite you to join us for a memorable day with your family exploring our more than 84 beautifully landscaped acres on the north end of Denver’s City Park. Or, if you share our passion and vision, please become a member or donor so our animals and staff can continue their work on behalf of wild animals and wild places around the world.
Educate! tackles youth unemployment by reforming what schools teach and how they teach it, so that students in Africa have the skills to start businesses, get jobs and drive development in their communities. Our model is delivered through practically-trained teachers and empowered youth mentors. Educate!’s goal is to make this practical, skills-based model part of national education systems.
Educate! believes that by transforming secondary education we can equip youth with the skills to disrupt the systemic problem of youth unemployment.
By creating a new educational model that reforms what schools teach and how they teach it, Educate! is empowering teachers and youth mentors to equip students with the skills to drive measurable change. Educate!’s experiential model teaches the “hard skills” of business including planning, budgeting, savings and market research. Educate! complements these skills with the “soft skills” demanded most by both employers and students themselves, such as teamwork, public speaking, networking, critical thinking, self-confidence and creativity.
