Creating a better world

Education Generation is a global community providing access to quality education for high potential students. They search the globe for innovative educational programs to connect donors and students. Through their online platform, individuals from around the world make contributions as low as $20 to collectively support individual students. 100% of your money (after paypal fees) supports their studies.

This community partners with high caliber institutions and community organizations to manage scholarships and student relationships on the ground. These organizations are deeply rooted in the communities they work in. They emphasize leadership development, entrepreneurial skills and market relevant training, and are working to influence their education system as a whole.

EdGen supports merit based scholarship programs and see it as their responsibility to portray students as the high potential youth and future leaders that they are. They do this by showcasing the students' goals, achievements, and aspirations for their communities. They believe that education is an investment in people, communities and future local economies.

EdGen knows that people's personal success, curiosity and values were shaped by educational opportunities received in and outside of the classroom. They want to create similar opportunities for all young people.

They see that scholarship programs are key to providing access to education to students in developed countries, and recognize the potential to extend this opportunity much further.

Education Generation collaborates with Create Change Foundation and HUGGS.
