Creating ripples of change
in a sea of hope

IF Education, all things are possible.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

We believe that the only way to escape poverty is through education. You can contribute to IFED’s success and know that less than 10% of your donation is used for administration and over 90% of your donation is used to purchase the necessary educational resources, training and tools to support the project.
With over 60 educational and training projects we are changing lives and creating better opportunities for individuals and communities in 21 countries around the globe. .

Projects by Zone.

AFRICA<br>
We have identified numerous educational and training opportunities throughout this desperately poor continent, and are identifying partner organizations with educational, training and environmental objectives.  We started our first successful and exciting project in Morocco in 2015, and have since expanded to 8 countries, providing resources for impoverished families in rural villages to enable their children to have the required student supplies and pay the small fees to attend government schools.

ASIA<br>
There are extremely low English proficiency rankings in many of the ASEAN countries, despite the mandate for English as the working language.  Opportunities for students are enhanced in the 12 countries and 40 projects where we have provided bilingual and English textbooks, training manuals, teaching materials and library resources.

CARIBBEAN<br>
Island countries rely primarily on fishing and tourism for their survival, both of which are being threatened by climate change as weather systems are destroying both.  Countries already suffering from extreme poverty and natural disasters, are desperate for educational and vocational training for survival and opportunities.

CENTRAL AMERICA<br>
Deforestation is a common problem in many countries in this region, as real estate development has expanded.  Violence and drug wars also create an unstable environment that is dangerous for tourism, foreign investment and sadly, living.  We are sponsoring individual students who need access to technology to continue their learning and remote classrooms where basic resources are needed.  Hopefully, with education, opportunities outside of their battered regions will be possible.

EUROPE<br>
Bilingual education in parts of Eastern Europe is not an option for many disadvantaged communities.  Communication is becoming more critical as the global economy presents new opportunities and the tourism industry is developed.  The public library in Croatia that worked with us to develop an English language center is making this possible for the community.

NORTH AMERICA<br>
We have 15 projects in the United States of America that provide education and resources for impoverished communities, victims of abuse and disadvantaged youth in economically depressed.  Our technology project in computer literacy was designed to teach communication skills for improved quality of life through family connection.  In Mexico, we have placed bilingual educational resources for K through 12 for students to learn communication skills for access to opportunities.

OCEANIA<br>
Only through literacy and bilingual education can we prepare students to interact in a global economy, which is critical for island countries that rely on tourism as the primary economy.  Families with limited access to education walk vast distances twice a week to deliver their children to the school, where they sleep on the floor and are provided sustenance diets during the school week.

SOUTH AMERICA<br>
Since our first educational project in 2000, we furnished school supplies to libraries and schools in the Amazon jungle in Peru and resources to support projects in Chile and Paraguay.  Our projects include literacy, bilingual education, chess programs, computer technology training and environmental & conservation education.  Vastly improved literacy and education in Peru, has enabled us to partner with a local organization to bring agricultural training, provide tools, trees and resources which are economically enriching families. The aim of our conservation programs is to foster awareness and develop environmental sensitivity through youth stewardship programs.
