ABOUT THE SAME SKY FOUNDATION

Same Sky Foundation


VISION STATEMENT

The Same Sky Foundation was founded in 2014 with a commitment to advancing women and girls in the classroom, the workplace, and in their own communities. Our dream is for all women under the same sky to have an opportunity to use their unique talents to flourish. By providing resources, funding, and support through collaborative efforts with like-minded initiatives working on the ground, the Foundation empowers vulnerable, underserved women in Rwanda and the United States. With access to the education, vocational training, and technology they need, Same Sky Foundation beneficiaries become self-sufficient entrepreneurs and role models.
