Education Without Borders (http://www NULL.educationwithoutborders NULL.ca/) links with Rose Charities USA

*

Education without Borders (EwB) aims to foster educational opportunities and provide facilities in disadvantaged regions of the world.

*

Formed in 2002 in Vancouver and granted charitable status in 2003, EwB operates on the principle that the development of knowledge and skills gives individuals greater control over their lives and more possibilities and choices for their future. Enhanced educational opportunities build communities from within and facilitate bridging between communities.

*

The Education without Borders organizers seek to fulfill this mandate through their own initiatives and fundraising, as well as through grants and partnerships with other non-profit organizations in B.C., Canada, USA and abroad.

*

Notwithstanding its overall mandate to work in different parts of the world, the Board of Directors has decided to focus primarily on two schools in Gugulethu, South Africa.

*

As a relatively small charity with limited resources, we believe that , at this stage of a specific focus will produce quantifiable results that would not be forthcoming from spreading ourselves too thinly. We see this as a strength as well a necessity as it allows us to really know the community, to work profoundly and deeply with problems on site, and to use this experience (as we develop and get more resources) to serve additional communities in South Africa.

*

The two schools we are currently involved with are Fezeka Senior Secondary and Songeze Middle Schools. The video on this page highlights some of EwB’s achievements to date.
