WHY EDUCATION? 

Education is our strongest weapon in the fight against poverty. 

At Far Away Friends, we see an investment in education as a starting point for the economic development of a community. Our philosophy is that regardless of where you live, all of us deserve access to the tools which can help us become conscientious global leaders. Our vision is to work alongside rural communities to improve access to quality education (private & public) for children and adults alike. Because education attainment is directly connected to higher wages, improved health/hygiene and career opportunities, we believe that it is our greatest weapon in the fight against generational poverty.
