We are a small passionate team of people who strive to promote educational opportunities and literacy year-round in under-resourced areas of Africa and the Caribbean. We are a diverse group of men and women of all nationalities and walks of life. We are accountants, businessmen, businesswomen, college professors, executives, homemakers, school teachers, graduate, undergraduate, high school, middle and elementary school students, all committed to making a difference in the lives of under-served children.
Our main focus is education. We run solely on the aid of our passionate volunteers eager to plant the Seeds Of KnoWledge. Although our roots are grounded in Benin , it is because of our dedicated volunteers that we have been able to successfully spread SOW's seeds in Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Haiti. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers and generous donors we have been able to impact over 7000 school children in the 5 countries we serve. We are truly humbled and grateful for each and everyone's support.
At SOW, we strive to provide educational opportunities for under-served children through the following programs:
Book Donation: (Textbooks/activity books/supplementary reading materials/school supplies/uniforms).
Library Construction/Literacy Programs: (We build modest libraries and/or reading rooms in rural and urban areas, implement reading hour and summer academic programs).
Tuition Assistance Programs: (For orphans and/or students in dire financial need).
