About Alma Children's Education Foundation
We are microphilanthropists. We make direct investments in specific projects rather than organizations. Our low cost/high impact model provide Canadian donors with a unique opportunity to be engaged in grass-roots initiatives with very low investments and high social returns on investments. Since 2010, we have helped over 5,000 children in Latin America.
We currently have 29 education projects in Peru and Bolivia. Each project is catered to the communities greatest educational need. Our projects fall into 5 categories:
- Early education projects (for children aged 0-5)
- Primary education projects
- Secondary education projects
- Higher education projects
- Partner projects
Our project pages include a short description of each project along with the actual project plan and the most recent updates written by our program director in Peru or our partner there.
We are extremely grateful for the support of our loyal donors and our 50+ volunteers around the world who make our impact possible.
