Since the start in 2013 the foundation has funded constructions of three schools, two playgrounds and helped hundreds of children to a better start. Yearly, Together for Better funds school supplies meaning everything from blackboards and desks to pens and books. and educational material to 300-400 children in poverty for the entire school year. The schools that Together for Better supports all give extra attention to girls education.
Together for Better believes that early childhood education is key to providing children with a head start. Only 16 % of children from the poorest families goes to pre-school. Supporting preschool for these children will ensure that also the most marginalised children arrive at school ready to learn.
