WHAT WE DO - SAME SKY

WHAT WE DO

The best philanthropy is a hand-up, not a hand-out.

The Same Sky Foundation advances opportunities for women and girls in Rwanda and America. Through business training, educational scholarships, and microgrants, the Same Sky Foundation is committed to elevating women living in poverty by giving them the tools they need to build self-esteem, self-reliance, and sustainable futures.

Business Training & Educational Scholarships

At Same Sky, we believe that 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.

Microgrants

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.

 



When you donate to the Same Sky Foundation,
you provide education and opportunity to women and girls so that they can build brighter futures for themselves and for their families.
