Commitment to Action

Education that Pays for Itself

Commitment by

Fundación Paraguaya

In 2007, Fundación Paraguaya committed to replicate on a massive scale its financially sustainable model of 'Education That Pays For Itself' in an additional fifty developing countries or schools by 2017. The creation of these fifty schools, and of the additional schools that these first fifty schools will inspire, will enable more than 120,000 disadvantaged youth from poor rural families to become successful rural entrepreneurs/employers, thereby allowing them and their families (600,000 people) to overcome poverty.
