- We also actively support youth development through our support of various global initiatives:
- Pro bono time to education and community development projects.
- SGI is committed to operating carbon neutrally. We annually offset our carbon footprint with Carbon Emissions Offsets and have to date planted 12 000 trees across nine countries.
We offset our carbon footprint through carbon offsets annually, plant over 1000 trees every year, sponsor pro-bono initiatives and donate to causes we care about via matching grants programs. We have been a fully virtual and paperless operation since 2014.
School the World
“I was overwhelmed by the number of incredibly talented SGI coaches who volunteered to coach me pro-bono and help School the World. It reflected such a generosity of spirit. I can’t wait to bring the learnings to bear as we take School the World to the next level!”
— Kate Curran, Founder & CEO, School the World
School the World is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded on the belief that empowerment begins with education. Their goal is to provide access for quality education to those living in the rural villages of Central America. Together with local governments, partners and deeply engaged parents, they provide young children living in the poorest communities the opportunity to learn so that they can work towards a brighter future.
Founded in 2009, School the World broke ground at its first school in Guatemala. Since then, they have built 45 primary schools, trained over 200 teachers and enrolled over 5 000 students in Honduras and Guatemala.
School the World is one of the first NGOs to mandate community partnership. They require municipalities to contribute 50% of the costs and the community must contribute land and unskilled labor. They also require parents to participate in parent education programs and contribute to the supply chain of books and supplies. Their goals is to expand to other developing countries and replicate the model of success they have witnessed to bring about change through education.
Shanti Children’s Foundation
“The support of Karlin and of the Sloan Group International community has made all the difference for our small non-profit. I’m not sure we would still be here without your love, encouragement and vital financial contribution. On behalf of the children whose lives are being immeasurably improved (helping them meet the hard challenges of a modernizing Nepal), I thank you with all my heart.”
— Pam Whitworth, Executive Director, Shanti Children’s Foundation
For almost twenty years Shanti Children’s Foundation has been educating needy children in Nepal through individual sponsorships. At a time when there is so much bad news in our world, these children are a ray of light. For a small investment annually, one can bring hope into their lives and the possibility of a brighter future. For less than $900 a year SCF can house, feed, clothe, and educate a child who would not otherwise have access to these things. Education gives them survival tools as they step into the modern world. It keeps them safe from trafficking and other forms of abuse. Over time, increased literacy will also help lay the groundwork for a more stable Nepal.
