“Limited educational opportunities perpetuate an already bleak outlook for youth around the world. We believe that targeting education is one of the most effective ways of building a better future.”

-B.A.S.I.C.S International, one of the Foundation’s partners working in Ghana

WHY WE DO THIS WORK

The Diamond Foundation supports a range of projects that emphasize education as a vehicle for poverty reduction. We believe in providing exceptional opportunities in scholarship, financial literacy, and wellness. Our field work brings us face-to-face with evidence of marginalization and we understand the negative consequences of remaining silent. Learn more about why we do this work.

Philanthropy ought to not only be well-intended, but also effective in achieving an overall goal. We strive to use research-based data to elevate the standard of living in at-risk communities worldwide.

PARTNER SPOTLIGHT: BASICS INTERNATIONAL

 

Because of economic hardship, many children in Ghana do not go to school and as a result, they are committed to a lifetime of suffering, exploitation and bad health. B.A.S.I.C.S. works with a community outside of the capital of Accra where it has over 200 students at it’s main facility, Nana’s House, which acts as a multipurpose centre to teach, mentor and sponsor children to go to school.

PHILANTHROPY WITHOUT ETHNOCENTRISM

“Marginalization in education is a form of acute and persistent disadvantage rooted in underlying social inequalities. It represents a stark example of ‘clearly remediable injustice.'”

-UNESCO, Education for All, Global Monitoring Report 2010
