Today 264 million children around the world are missing out on education, over half are girls and over 75 million have had their school disrupted by lack of government funding, insufficient infrastructure, no school supplies, conflict, and natural disasters.

WHO WE ARE

Nelson Mandela said education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. 

Most of our efforts are focused on giving, creating and providing educational tools and models to help make the world make a better place for all of us.

First Serve Foundation provides bright futures for children, families, and communities. The foundation partners with schools, communities, and children in need by providing the EDUCATIONAL building blocks for a child's bright future.

We believe that EDUCATION can move a child beyond the stigma of poverty, and give that child the tools to reach his or her true and full potential. 

Educated and healthy children will lead their communities out of poverty and build the thriving nations of tomorrow.
