JAAS Foundation helps schools and underprivileged students, adults, and communities in Ethiopia, Uganda, Venezuela, Colombia, Kenya, and other countries across the world. The JAAS Foundation maintains three foundational and equal components to create opportunities across the globe: Learning the universal language, promoting Digital literacy, and providing Connectivity & internet access.
These components when engaged with a desire to grow manifest the very essence of what this foundation is all about. Educational Equity for all. The small, volunteer-driven organization has no governmental or political affiliation and wishes to help anyone regardless of race, religion, creed, or gender. Since the JAAS Foundation has little overhead, every donation goes deeper into the program to ensure educational prosperity is achieved.
The JAAS Foundation is on a journey to bring English and digital literacy to the lives of underprivileged children, as it continues to make an impact in the world it also pursues to evolve and refine it’s where, how, and who they serve to maximize the impact. Initially, it focused on connectivity and offered internet connections to schools in struggling countries. Over time, however, the non-profit expanded to offer e-learning content via an online learning portal that was developed via proprietary artificial intelligence software. The portal is intended to help children learn English and digital literacy anywhere in the world. The founders understand that true opportunity can be achieved if all three elements are in place and that no one integrant is more important than the other.
By donating to the JAAS Foundation not only do you join our cause but you are directly supporting the educational foundation necessary for children and adults in underserved communities to achieve greatness. No matter how big or small the donation, you have made a lasting impact for the underprivileged of today, and fortified the growth of tomorrow.
