The Luminos Fund

There are 258 million children around the world who do not know how to read or write. Children who are out of primary school are uniquely challenged to develop vital skills over time.

Boston, MA – EIN 364817073 luminosfund.org

The Luminos Fund was founded to ensure children everywhere get a chance to experience joyful learning, especially those denied an education by poverty, conflict, and discrimination. Our vision is of a world where no child is ever denied the chance to learn. Luminos currently operate classrooms in Ethiopia, Lebanon, and Liberia where students live in very challenging circumstances. Many are the first in their family to receive an education.

Our Second Chance initiative, an accelerated learning program for out-of-school children also known as Speed School, is one of the world’s leading innovations in K-12 education. In just ten months, we teach students to read and do math – to learn how to learn – through a joyful, activity-based curriculum.
