  • Soup's On (and On, and On...) Plates and forks and stoves, oh my! Not just flatware—flat-everywhere. Let's stock some cabinets.
  • Literacy unlocks the world. Beyond providing instruction and information, it's a foundation for innovation, inspiration, and introspection in readers. Adult literacy classes are perhaps the most fundamental, practical means of empowerment for our community partners, as they learn to demystify the written world and find meaning in the words around them.
  • A more educated world is one more apt to solve the problems facing it. Give girls and young women access to education, and you'll equip them with the ability to take active roles in the tomorrows we all share.
  • Ctrl Alt Repeat. It's official: Computers are here to stay. Help someone learn the basics, so that they too might enjoy the benefits of life on the grid—robust record-keeping, easier and more expansive means of communication, access to educational resources, and a lifetime's worth of videos featuring cats doing all sorts of silly things.
  • Think about your first bike: It was likely your first taste of freedom, and your first tug of responsibility. Whether or not you had a plan–or even roads–you were ready to roll. For kids in Outreach-affiliated communities, bikes are a both a practical means of navigating unpredictable road conditions and a nice metaphor for our approach to empowerment: Combining human-centric determination, effort and balance to build inertia and blaze a path toward whatever destination they have in mind (once they're home from school).
  • Farmer Fund-amentals. Agricultural practices evolved over thousands of years, so new farmers have some catching up to do. Forget about teaching a person to fish—teach people to farm, and you'll equip them with valuable skills, as well as giving us a more expansive metaphor for sustainable success we can use in our future marketing materials!
  • What’s the only essential element of community-led development? Leadership! Okay, and also a community too, but the local leaders thing is our organizing principle. Doing our best means knowing the most, and the more people who know the particulars, the more we can do together. Equip and inform local leaders with basic values, knowledge and skills in problem-solving, organizational development and management.
  • Full Tummies, Hungry Minds. Passing notes, watching the clock, doodling in margins' school has enough distractions. Hunger shouldn't be another one. Provide students with three nutritious meals daily, and give them the energy they need to succeed in their studies and get the most out of every recess.
  • Saved by the Bell. Take any kid, suit 'em up in a school uniform, toss in a backpack full of books, notebooks, pencils, and other supplies, and presto, they're all set for a fruitful day at school, whether they like it or not.
  • Equal Education. Take any kid, suit 'em up in a school uniform, toss in a backpack full of books, notebooks, pencils, and other supplies, and presto, they're all set for a fruitful day at school, whether they like it or not.
  • Stay Classy, Kids. Want enduring solutions to global poverty? Start young. Fund a classroom, and give kids the best shot at a better tomorrow by making the critical thinking skills and the pursuit of knowledge a lifelong habit.
  • Motivate the motivators. Not that teachers are in it for the money, but with so many empowering to-dos on everyone's lists, it's important that all time is time well spent. Teachers provide a comforting, trusting atmosphere for students-of-a-certain-age to build confidence and skills as they students their curiosity, and work toward a future where they can put their knowledge to use and teach the next generation.
  • Make Classy Kids Classier. You want enduring solutions to global poverty? Start early. Fund a classroom and give kids the best shot at a better tomorrow by making the pursuit of knowledge a lifelong habit.
