Projects with Purpose

We’ve partnered with schools throughout the US and UK to help students gain greater appreciation of geography, culture and core philanthropic principles. To date, kids have raised $64,000 for 50 projects. See their impact below.

How to get involved

Get involved in a meaningful, hands-on experience that expands your learning well beyond a classroom.

You have a few options:
World Connect Club—A World Connect Club can stand on its own or integrate into a relevant preexisting club. World Connect Clubs are led by students and supported by faculty advisors. A World Connect Club is a powerful way to engage an intimate group of students. Connect with students and citizens across the world as you learn how to make a difference in the lives of women, children and their communities. Discover the immediacy, power and personal rewards of philanthropy.

Campus-wide Initiative—Campus-wide initiatives are led by an individual or group who elect student leaders to be the point people to the student body. As in a World Connect Club, students learn about, discuss, and vote on projects around which to center their education and fundraising efforts. Members can choose their top projects of interest currently listed on the World Connect site to learn more about, think about the project’s implementation and sustainability, hone leadership skills, and develop a sense of global citizenship and connection with these real communities around the world. You can receive regular reports, photos, and videos from the field to witness the direct impact you’re making. Through fundraisers, you can raise both money and awareness for projects supporting women and children in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.
