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.
