The success of our Education Program has produced three graduates who now have a better chance at breaking the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families.
Although a difficult year for some due to the pandemic, graduates as well as the other beneficiaries of our Education Program were able to complete their studies thanks to the support of our donors.
To learn more on how the Roots of Change Foundation is creating opportunities for those who wouldn’t have had the chance at post secondary education, check out Education Programs.
