Children from Mercy of God Academy

Creative Philanthropy supports the education of underprivileged children in rural and remote parts of the world. We provide comprehensive educational support and mentoring for children and teachers. We search for dedicated local educators and administrators that want to bring the best education possible to children, while still maintaining the regional culture of the schools themselves.

  • Education in rural India:
  • 30% of children don’t attend school past 4th Grade
  • 60% of girls won’t even reach the 4th Grade
  • Textbooks, blackboards and many other basic needs are missing
  • Children often walk hours to get to school
  • Those who do attend school, only get basic education.
  • Teachers work on a really low wage or volunteer
  • On average, a teacher has 40 students, often from different grades
  • Education is a tool for peace, growth and positive change.

Our current projects:

Mercy of God Academy – Pratapnagar, India

The Mercy of God Academy, located in the Uttarakhand state of India, is first school to receive assistance from Creative Philanthropy. Team members from Creative Philanthropy first met with the school in May 2015, and saw such dedication and commitment from the founders of the school that we immediately came on board and committed to helping provide textbook, materials, computers, broadband connection and additional support for the children showing potential for future growth, fair wages for teachers and also for a school bus, as some children are walking 3 to 4 miles each day to school to be educated.

We currently raising funds to support Mercy of God via our Crowdfunding Campaign. Click here to find out more details!
