The Next Generation of World-Changing Leaders

Through the Furaha Community Foundation, many of the High School graduates are recipients of the Furaha Community Foundation Scholarship. The scholarship allows these graduates to pursue a University, College Degree or Vocational Training Diploma. If a student is empowered through advanced education their entire family is lifted out of extreme poverty. The scholarship make possible what the students could only dream of!

Meet Lydia!

She is the Furaha School Nurse. She is intervening and bringing health to the children of Furaha.

Furaha care for the physical, emotional and spiritual health of the children.

Your dollars are in action each and every day, as our partners make plans for the current times and the future.

The hiring of a school nurse to serve all students in the primary and the secondary school is allowing students the opportunity to be seen by a medical professional, a service that would not be offered otherwise in most homes.

When you support When I Grow Up, you are supporting our friends in Guatemala. Today we hear from our friend Jose who is working with Pastor Alex to provide food, water, and resources to Zone 18 in Guatemala City.

The need is great.

You are providing water.


You are providing life to people around the world with your donations.

As you give, you are encouraging others. Let’s keep going.

Give today to empower our partners from around the world.

From Furaha… You are needed

150 150 When I Grow Up

Welcome, friend

Thank you for joining the movement to empower children out of extreme poverty.

In Furaha our friends face challenges that need your help.

Furaha is currently implementing the rigorous Competency Based Curriculum that requires students to produce work that tests their skills using digital resources. In order for students to be successful, parents are also asked to play a role by providing technology for their students, though this can be problematic as families lack the digital resources to help their students.

Amidst the challenges, your giving, and your continued giving allows for the students of Furaha to access laptops so students can access the digital literacy needed to show competency.

Donate today so our partners can continue to supply the students of Furaha with the proper resources to meet the growing demands of learners.

You are needed.
