EACH DONATION HAS A HIGH RETURN

You can make a profound and long-lasting difference.

When an investment is made in early learning programs for low income children, the world benefits.  According to The Center for High Impact Philanthropy of the University of Pennsylvania: "The primary beneficiaries are children and their parents. For example, if a low-income parent is able to secure a place for her child in a high quality daycare program, that child is likely to benefit from exposure to a wider array of learning opportunities than he or she might have at home. Enrolling her child in daycare may also open the door for the parent to take on employment or further her education in order to improve her career prospects. Those individual benefits can be substantial, and life-changing."

Additional beneficiaries are local, national governments and communities, by the decrease of poverty levels, children grow to be healthier adults, active participants in the economy and with lower delinquency rates than those resulting from lack of education

Investing in early education with  proven methodologies such as Montessori, in low-income communities has the highest economic and well-being return on investment for society and the world.
