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.
Inclusion Through Education
We believe that when people are better educated, they have better chances to find meaningful employment, and feel more included in their communities. When communities are more inclusive, there is less conflict, less dissent, and less disenfranchisement within that community, which benefits all its residents.
Many of our partners are providing specific educational interventions that are designed to increase the potential for students to improve their lives.
