Support Our Work

Help students around the world

No matter how much you choose to give, your generosity will directly impact students and future leaders around the world.
Over 1 billion people worldwide are learning English as a second or foreign language. English opens a world of opportunities—more education, better jobs, and access to information. Students are asking for our teachers! But we can't find, train, and equip teachers to serve these communities without your support. You can make it possible for teachers to change lives across Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa!
