The best philanthropy is a hand-up, not a hand-out.
Our dream is for all women under the same sky to have an opportunity to use their talent to advance themselves. The Same Sky Foundation supports projects directly by working on the ground. The foundation gives the most vulnerable and underserved women, whether in Rwanda or the United States, the education, training, and tools they need to become self-sufficient entrepreneurs and role models for their families and their communities.
Business Training & Educational Scholarships
Education and employment are the twin pillars necessary to enfranchise a woman. With this in mind, the Same Sky Foundation funds business trainings for women to help them forge sustainable paths forward as business leaders.
The Foundation also provides scholarships to Rwandan girls to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), paving the way for the next generation of Rwandan girls to become innovative thinkers and strong leaders.
At Same Sky, we don’t just believe in the power of second chances: we create them. In Jersey City, NJ, the Same Sky Foundation is proud to provide microgrants to women in need of a leg up. Purchasing appropriate attire for a job interview, affording childcare for a court appointment, or paying the application fee for an apartment rental can all create substantial barriers to women trying to get their lives back on track. But with microgrants, women can turn a small subsidy into a big opportunity to start a new life.
Sometimes, people require only a little to accomplish a lot.
