Education transforms the present and the future.
There are currently over 6 million refugee children between the ages of 5 and 17 around the world. These children flee their homes and often are separated from their families because of conflict in their countries. When I hear about the perpetual wars and crises going on in countries such as Syria, Somalia, Yemen and Libya, my heart breaks. I am devastated for the families torn apart and the countless deaths each day. But as I look to the future, I cannot help but think, "Where are the children in the midst of this? Where are they being educated? Who is going to come in after the conflict to build schools?"
And thus birthed the idea of B2THEWORLD.
The vision of B2THEWORLD is to bless children, parents and families in countries that are recovering from war through transformative educational institutions.
The goal is not just to build schools or send teachers, but to provide an education that transforms the lives of those involved.
We dream of the day when every child in countries currently facing war or recovering from war do not wake up with a fear of whether they are going to survive the day but with joy that today they get to go to school in a place that is safe and where people truly care for them. While we might not be able to change the future for every child, we can build a new future for many. Will you join us?
Our goal is to serve. B2THEWORLD desires to give opportunities for growth that children and families might not even be able to dream about yet. Our institutions will build into children by giving them tools and a safe environment to grow physically, educationally and spiritually.
Although there are educational needs in every country, our primary focus is on countries that are recovering from war. B2THEWORLD is working to fill an overwhelming need in countries facing a similar devastation as that of Rwanda after the genocide of 1994.
Access to any level of education changes a life. But quality educational institutions can completely transform the future for generations to come. B2THEWORLD aims to establish schools that will create opportunities for children, families and societies that currently might seem impossible.
