The Alma Children's Education Foundation is a registered Canadian charity based in Toronto. Our mission is to make positive changes in the lives of Latin American children.
We believe that by improving the quality of early childhood education in economically marginalized regions of Central and South America we are helping families overcome social and economic hardship. We use a microphilanthropic model, partnering with local social entrepreneurs on small, high social return, grassroots education initiatives. Our funds are invested, consistent with our guiding principles, to maximize social return on capital.
Alma is the Spanish word for "soul".
