Equal Access to Education Fund


The Equal Access to Education Fund is a collection of organizations that impactfully address the lack of access to quality education faced by children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad. Increasing access to education not only provides a pathway out of poverty for children, but grows economies and improves the health and longevity of communities. The nonprofits featured in the Fund seek to alleviate some of the most significant barriers to education worldwide, including low literacy rates, gender discrimination, a lack of adequately trained teachers, and a lack of funding for classrooms and learning materials.
