We Provide Access to Quality Education

The Impact of Education

LPGM provides access to quality education for people at the margins—especially women and girls.

A child is 50% more likely to live past the age of 5 if her mother can read
Childbirth is #1 cause of death for girls around the world aged 15-19
Child marriage decreases 3-fold for girls who attend secondary school
For every $1 invested in education, $10 is generated in earning & health benefits.

“LPGM has been a marvelous organization in helping to provide access to quality education for girls and women, boys and men. I continue to be astonished at the difference it is making in the small corners of the world!”
-The Rev. Mark Tiede (Minneapolis, Minn.)

Where We Work

We work with global partners to listen, respond, and bear witness to local needs and priorities.

Other Places We've Partnered

We Provide Primary & Secondary Education

Sponsor a Student in India

When you sponsor a student in India, you provide them shelter, food, clothing, medical care and school supplies. Children come from families who value education, but cannot provide the kind of opportunities they would like for their children.
