Educate Earth - Empowering Lives
The idea of Educate Earth was initially conceived in the winter of 2014, and by the end of 2015 we were able to establish what was once merely an idea. Educate Earth originated from the realisation that if one has had a privileged life than that is all the more reason to help those who are less fortunate. It is this realisation, coupled with the educational platform our trustees possess, that led to the desire for establishing Educate Earth. Our aim is to provide financial assistance to students globally; based on academic potential and financial circumstances. We firmly believe that if we can help educate even one person from a low-income family then this person can lift the quality of life of their whole family in addition to benefitting their whole community. In a world of Internet, television and access to free education where information is at our fingertips, we are prone to take education for granted. Sadly, many do not have this luxury. For the less fortunate, education can provide the shoes to walk out of poverty and the harness to conquer the obstacles between them and a better way of life. In many third world countries where quality education is the need of the hour and where it would arguably provide the greatest benefits it is treated as a commodity that is out of reach for those in it's pursuit.
