Purpose and Activities

The organization's mission is to improve the lives of children living in poverty around the world through education.


Established in 1998 in CO - After witnessing the barriers preventing extremely poor children from accessing education, anthropologist Eliza Woloson founded Global Education Fund in 1998 with a shipment of books to a school in Nicaragua. The organization then focused on providing books and literacy tools to orphanages and learning centers in Latin America. In 2007, the organization broadened its scope to begin working in Kenya, removing barriers to education for vulnerable children, through scholarships and leadership initiatives. Since its inception the organization has had projects in 22 countries. Currently, the organization is focused on removing obstacles to education in three high-need counties: Kenya, India and Guatemala. The organization continues to adhere to its founding principles; listen to local needs, work collaboratively to provide resources that can be leveraged in a sustainable way, and share innovative models for educating children living in poverty.
