Education transforms communities & breaks the cycle of extreme poverty. It leads to better hygiene, better nutrition, additional jobs, and more thriving local economies. With more opportunities, families are more likely to stay together, and the conditions that promote trafficking will lessen. And it all starts with teachers.
A good teacher can make a world of difference. By ensuring that the teachers can provide for themselves and their families, and equipping them with necessary supplies and training, we enhance the education our students receive--we bring opportunity & hope to entire communities.

Better teachers lead to better schools.
Better schools leads to stronger communities.
Stronger communities are the best prevention for trafficking and the best way to fight poverty.
And it all starts with teachers.
