Improving access to education for those most in need
Initiatives We Fund
- Sponsoring a Buddhist nun at Dongyu Gatsal Ling in India by paying for her education costs and living expenses. Build to Learn is funding Buddhist nuns in India because women in India do not have the educational (and other) opportunities that men in India have. Dongyu Gatsal Ling was chosen after personally exploring options in the region of north India and deciding on the best one that meets our mandate.
- Contributing costs to St. Arnille Marie Handicap Centre to pay living and education expenses for handicapped children in Douala, Cameroon. St. Arnille was chosen for its strong dedication to their mission of helping disabled kids coupled with their lack of funding and difficulty in accessing donations due to their small size and location.
- Donating to War Child Canada to assist their mission of helping children from war zones to reclaim their childhood by providing access to education, opening up opportunities and delivering justice. War Child Canada was selected because of their fruitful efforts in helping children in war zones combined with their operational efficiency – they rank a B+ in Charity Intelligence Canada as they only spend 7% of their budget on administrative and fundraising costs.
- Funding Boundless, a boarding school and outdoor adventure school, that helps at-risk youth in Toronto to attain their high school diploma. Boundless was picked for their strong track record and organizational efficiency. They deliver 91 cents of every dollar donated to fund actual program costs.
Help Empower Students in Need
We are continually fundraising for additional educational charitable initiatives and looking to start our own projects. We decide on funding initiatives based on wherever there is the greatest need and the highest donation-to-action efficiency.
