A Letter from the 

Executive Director, August 2019:

...We realized just how challenging it is for students in our program to commute to high school in neighboring towns.


In some instances, students must pay 500 Old Ouguiyas, or about $1.30, in one-way taxi fare to get to schools which too far to walk.


That cost is out of reach for many families and thus prohibits students from attending secondary school.

We came to a crossroads: what good are school supplies if the student cannot get to school to use them?  


Learn today. Lead tomorrow.

Eliminate barriers to education for young Mauritanians.

Today, thousands of school-age children in Mauritania are out of school.


Our vision: All young Mauritanias achieve the level of education that they desire, regardless of ethnicity, gender, geography, or socioeconomic status.

Donate today to help provide Mauritanian children access to school supplies. Invest in their education today!

Learn how you can help eliminate barriers to education for young Mauritanians.
