Mission Statement

Mission

Bridges to Learning’s mission is to provide resources for the education, well-being, and social development of impoverished children in developing countries. We are currently focusing on schools and educational programs in Vietnam.

Vision

We seek to become an organization that makes a significant difference in the world through:

  • Caring and committed donors who generate sufficient and sustainable resources
  • Ensuring our revenue best used to finance services and supports for impoverished children
  • Knowledgeable professional staff working in developing countries
  • Giving older children a chance to start school in the first grade even if they have never attended school before, in a manner that does not diminish their feelings of self-worth and in a way that bolsters their confidence.

Values

Hope: We finance and nurture the dreams and aspirations of very poor children and find that their achievements give us hope in return.

Caring: We create a community of people who are concerned, responsive, engaging and who are pleased to be help students overcome life challenges.

Non-Discrimination: We welcome all regardless of economic circumstance or racial, religion, sexual or political identity.

Integrity: We "walk the walk." We are stewards of Bridges to Learning and of our mission. We inspire and take action that promotes wellbeing.
