Transform Lives Around The World

Your Donation Brings English To Those Who Want To Learn

Sponsor a community, a teacher, a volunteer, provide classroom materials in some of the poorest areas of the world. Your gift continues to give and grow as each student passes on the language.

Only 20% Speak English

That's right! Only 20% of the world's population speaks English. We're on a mission to change that. We provide on-going classes in communities, schools, businesses and even with emergency medical groups and the tourist police. Learning to speak English takes a willing teacher and a willing student. It isn't rocket science.

See Our Impact

We're proud of the progress that has been made through the efforts of our teachers and tutors. Over 2.1 million people speak English now, who didn't before. Since 2001 we have moved over 70,000 people globally to learn, speak and teach English.

Local Partners 

Our local partners on the ground make sure it gets done. The organizations we choose to partner with have demonstrated a community-centered approach. They are some of the best in the world bringing English alive.

How Do We Use Your Money?

We invest the money we raise into local organizations like schools, small businesses, tourist police offices, emergency medical centers and language schools. Our partner organizations have years of experience building sustainable, community-run English language projects around the world.

 

How Do We Use Your Time?

We also invest our own funds by sending teachers and volunteers abroad to teach English. Bringing English to people looks different in each country. Urban vs. rural. Young vs. old. In-class vs. online. Since 2001 we have found there is a solution to everything.
