Education opens up a world of opportunities. The Venverloh Family Foundation supports education initiatives to ensure that opportunities are available to all who strive to learn and grow.

According to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), all education for children must be “free, compulsory and of good quality.” Globally, school represents so much more than just a place to learn. Schools are safe environments for underprivileged children, as well as those in unstable homes. They provide tools for socialization and personal growth. Education is critical to empowering a new generation to fight poverty and disease throughout the world. 


The Academic Credential Evaluation Institute (ACEI-Global) found that in developing countries, educated girls and women are less vulnerable to HIV infection, human trafficking and other forms of exploitation. In addition, children raised by mothers who are educated are less likely to be malnourished. 


In the United States, approximately 65% of high school graduates enroll in college or university. Increasing opportunities for secondary or postsecondary education is important to increasing access to rewarding jobs and careers that include health benefits for families. 

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” - Proverbs 22:6

The Venverloh Family Foundation has a heart for providing and improving education opportunities for communities around the world. Whether constructing classrooms in Castra, Haiti or supporting education initiatives in northern California, contributing to education is a core action area for the foundation.
