Mission: Simply Equal Education is a nonprofit organization that works to help young people in the United States and Equatorial Guinea understand their role as active agents of social change and to help them develop relationships with their peers around the world.
We accomplish this through a variety of programs including interactive presentations, student led initiatives, school supply drives and service learning exchange programs.
We believe the lack of educational opportunities is a crisis on a global scale and once Simply Equal Education has been able to establish consistent support in Equatorial Guinea we will be able to expand our programming in other countries.
In a global economy, if we are going to leave the world in a better place, we need to create the conditions where children have the opportunities to engage each other.
It is not simply a piece of paper or a pencil, it is an opportunity for a child to write their name or color a picture and a chance for a child to see that they too can make a lasting difference in the world. Helping youth connect with and learn from each other is what we believe defines the true essence of education.
We believe that this is not a grand idea, but simply, an equal education for all.

I'm impressed with how much good SEE has done in such a relatively short period of time. The compassion and efficiency of their staff is second to none. In addition to the good they bring to the students they serve, the opportunity they give to students here to connect to students abroad is life changing.
This organization serves children that are easily forgotten about, since they live in a country most people don't even know exists. They work tirelessly to ensure these children have an opportunity to learn so that they may have brighter futures. Also they work to to promote global awareness through programs such as their pen pal program.
SEE is an organization that serves to provide opportunities for children to have a proper education, something that we just sometimes take for granted. While ensuring these kids get a decent education, they are also helping those on this side of the globe learn about their brothers and sisters abroad. As a donor i am pleased with the way donations are used to their maximum potential.
Simply Equal Education is a wonderfully inspiring nonprofit run by two incredible women, whose main goal is to help every child not only receive the same opportunities to learn but also the tools that they need to help them be successful. This is one of the most useful and needed nonprofits that I know.
