EDUCATION CHANGES EVERYTHING FOR THE BETTER. And, educating girls is the most effective way to reduce poverty so no child ever goes to bed hungry. I'm raising money to support education of kids and women through Mona Foundation. On average, it costs only $1/day to educate a child. Whether you donate $5 or $500, every little bit helps! Please support our campaign!

About the Project

Located in one of the poorest areas of Manaus, Brazil, ADCAM has educated thousands of marginalized children, youth and adults for 30 years and helped transform entire communities. Of the 550 students currently in the K-12 and youth programs 46% are girls.

The Association for Cohesive Development of the Amazon (ADCAM) started in 1985 as a small orphanage with 30 kids. Today, it is a nationally-recognized institution which offers K-12, a technical college, vocational training, a family development center and rural education programs serving over 876 students, and 2,500 youth, families and elderly a day.

About Mona Foundation

We support grassroots initiatives that provide education to all children, increase opportunities for women and girls, and emphasize service to the community.

The schools that we support serve marginalized communities globally. They focus on academic excellence, fine arts and character education to develop capable, ethical, and altruistic leaders who contribute to the betterment of their families, communities, and ultimately their nation.  In 2017 we supported the education of 258,000 students, teacher and parents in 18 projects in 10 countries.

 

We focus our support on these three areas:

 

  1. Access - We work with local organizations who know best how to meet the needs of their communities through providing access to education by building classrooms or providing scholarships.
  2. Empower Women & Girls - We believe that empowering women has multiplier effects and benefits all.  Women spend 90% of their earned income on their family and directly impact the economic growth of their communities.
  3. Teacher Training - We emphasize and support teacher training to ensure a high quality of learning and commitment to service.
