Looma Education

With 1/100 of California's per-pupil budget, many schools in Nepal lack reliable electricity, the Internet, and teaching resources. The interactive, inexpensive Looma system, powered by solar, overcomes these barriers with bright projected video, ample audio, and a library with the national curriculum, open-source content, teacher aids, team learning-exercises, and lesson plans.

Nicaragua College Fund

Nicaragua College Fund makes possible trade school and college education for young people who are committed to improving their lives and who, without our help, might never break the cycle of poverty.
