Why VIP

Youth across the economic spectrum are at risk of alienation and disconnection. Low income and displaced youth are particularly at risk because of limited access to guidance, education, job opportunities, access to technology and stable social and familial environments.

We look for intervention solutions to help youth thrive by funding solutions that

  • Foster opportunities for lifetime learning
  • Provide employment opportunities
  • Employ technology to scale learning experiences
  • Introduce critical thinking programs
  • Build social connections with a global community

You decide!

We’ve all seen the tragic effect war has on youth in the Middle East. Young men are recruited by corrupt organizations and trained for a lifetime of violence. These young men would opt for an opportunity to receive an education and secure an income if it was available to them.

By deciding to act in support of our programs, you offer them a choice of peace and to become thriving member of a global community.

We believe that each of us can transform a young person’s life. Protect future by guiding youth.

What we do:

  • Plan and deliver education programs that leapfrog outdated education models.
  • Build technologies that further new models of education and means of engagement.
  • Run digital campaigns to raise awareness, drive engagement and fund education projects.

Who supports us?
