From Malawi and Senegal to Barbados and the United States, we’re investing in partners making a tangible difference in the lives of students, both in and out of school.
We believe in the right to education as a weapon against injustice and inequality, and that every child, no matter where they live, deserves the opportunity to fulfill their potential.
With more than 263 million young people not in school globally, a significant part of a generation is at risk of getting left behind. Access to quality education is not only a basic human right, but a critical component of a foundation to a happier, more productive life.
“Women need a seat at the table to participate in developing strategies to strengthen economies, to strengthen families and communities, to create equitable shared wealth, and to sustain our environment.”
Our Barbados program supports primary and secondary schools in the country with funding for youth development projects and academic programs.
Our 360-degree approach to supporting girls education in Malawi, in partnership with CAMFED, aims to impact more than 7,500 girls through a variety of programs, including secondary school scholarships for young women; a locally led bicycle donation program that includes entrepreneurship and skills training; microgrants for aspiring female entrepreneurs; and a professional development program that helps young women successfully transition to a career.
Global Scholarship Program
Our Global Scholarship Program supports exceptional students from the Caribbean and South America who wish to pursue higher education in the United States. While matriculating, scholars actively engage with CLF throughout the year. There are currently 17 scholars actively enrolled in the program. From completing community service projects to excelling in their majors, our Global Scholars represent some of tomorrow’s most promising leaders.
