Imagine creating solutions to poverty that don't need continuous funding. What if, instead, small businesses could be created that could sustainably fund local schools and cover basic needs like clean water and hygiene?
At 10-years-old, Daphne Pariser made a life-altering decision, that she was going to not only commit her life to help others but do so in a way that allowed it to be sustainable. She wanted to revolutionize sustainability to help people create their own solutions to poverty.
Everything that is created at Humans for Education reflects the belief that everyone holds the potential to create their own solutions. They believe in thinking differently about helping others by: (1) consulting and funding community-driven, culturally-sensitive small businesses with an ROI of ~20%, (2) stimulating the local economy, and (3) ensuring safe and sanitary learning conditions for all. When all is said and done, they aim to create financial independence.
Driven by the need to shift the paradigm from poverty to independence, Humans for Education focuses on three distinct areas: small businesses; water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH); and lifetime scholarships. After receiving their 501(c)(3) in 2016 they accomplish these goals by partnering with high achieving companies, such as Rotary International, Tender Greens, Moe’s, and many more.
