WHO THEY ARE
Education creates independence that inspires confidence and brings peace.
At the Ann Foundation, an NGO for eduation, they aspire to bring the basic right of education to children and young people around the world. They believe that education creates a better tomorrow for everyone. Poverty, disability, gender discrimination, child labor, slavery are all hurdles that keep children from receiving an education. Once they are excluded from the school system, these children face ever-increasing challenges to their future success. Education brings hope to these children. Hope that they can someday have decent jobs, become contributing members of their society, and have a better quality of life. Join them in bringing education, a basic human right, to to the underprivileged kids and youth they serve so they can realize their potential; not just because they deserve it, but because their children are their future.
Their Mission is to empower disadvantaged children through progressive education. Ann Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization creating permanent positive change in the world. Guided by the belief that every child deserves an equal right to education, they provide online and on-the-ground literacy solutions to less fortunate children and youth and those with disabilities.
In developing countries, the Foundation focuses on providing programs to kids who might not otherwise get an opportunity to develop their inherent talent, either because of their disability, gender or socio-economic status.
They envision a world where every disadvantaged child has access to basic education. All their efforts are geared towards helping shape young lives for tomorrow.
They work with trusted locally based, schools and grassroots organizations to build sustainable outcomes for young people around the world.
THEIR GUIDING PRINCIPLES:
Passion: Their founder’s passion is reflected throughout their organization. From the work that they do with children and youth to the volunteers and board members that work with them, everyone is guided by their mission of improving the quality and future prospects of young lives in need.
Honesty: Honesty lies at the heart of their organization’s work. They do their work with utmost integrity and authenticity.
Creativity: Working in developing nations such as India, Africa and Egypt, they have learnt how to be creative problem solvers. They believe in thinking outside the box in a search for solutions, finding creative ways to make things happen and taking quick action.
Efficiency: Not always do they have the required funding for the global impact they strive to make, which means they have had to learn how to be efficient in their work. They believe in setting goals and accomplishing them within their limited resources.
Respect: They treat their board members, volunteers, aid-workers, partners, sponsors, and everyone they meet from the children they teach to the teachers and service providers in the communities where they work with respect. They are humble when they mistakes and quickly learn from them. They do not discriminate when hiring or working with others in various communities.
