“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world ”
— Nelson Mandela
Founded in 2011, Tailored for Education strives to increase school enrollment in impoverished areas by providing children with school uniforms. For millions of children around the globe, education represents the only way out of a life of poverty.
While most schools charge a nominal tuition fee or are privately funded, they still require students to wear a uniform. The average cost of a uniform at the schools we work with is $25. This out of pocket cost is often a financial burden for the family and forces many to forego school, or worse, send the children to work.
Providing these children with uniforms gives them the opportunity to receive an education and improve their standard of living. With the donations we receive we provide students with locally made uniforms and an opportunity to create a better life for themselves and their families.
