Universal Promise

Justice Civility Hope

Our Story


We provide individuals and institutions in underserved regions with the academic resources needed to ensure educational and career opportunities that will promote just, civil, and hopeful societies. Our mission is clear. We fund education to achieve and sustain equity, and this is how we do it. First, we transform schools. We renovate and uplift schools by funding their Top 10 Wishes for change, as shared by local administrators, educators, parents, and students. Second, we support individuals. We provide academic resources (school uniforms, books, laptops, and housing) to students who have beaten the odds despite all challenges. Third, we address urgent needs. We strive for sustainability, but sometimes people just need immediate intervention to open the right gate at the right time: anything from COVID-19 protection to university housing.

We fund education to achieve and sustain equity, and this is how we do it in South Africa.
