Our Philosophy

The Zamani Foundation’s most basic mission is to educate youth for a life of opportunity and hope.

Our development activities are part of a “whole person” initiative that span an entire life.

“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.“

Our "four pillar model" aims

To drive communities of impoverished children toward the upward cycle that Confucius wrote of centuries ago – and take the children of our world to great new heights.

Education

We believe in the potential within every individual, and we know that education is the key to unlock it. The Zamani Foundation helps to provide basic knowledge and general skills/training – often through other institutions such as orphanages and refugee camps – to children disadvantaged by war and poverty.
