We know, it’s complicated. But let’s mark out some interesting points- so you can know some more about how different countries employ what Mandela called “the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”: education.

[/b] During the month of August, we are running an innovative campaign which embodies this principle-- Green Apple Giving.

Donors can direct their pledge to any student or project listed on the Givology site, whether this be supporting construction on mobile shipping container classrooms in Benin or supporting...
