Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Educational Services

Mission: The primary purpose of the goabroad foundation is connecting individuals with good intentions to sustainable development initiatives around the world and to help facilitate the flow of donations to such projects. The goabroad foundation aims to provide support to local communities and grassroots organizations to aid developments in education, child welfare, public health, and the environment.

Programs: The organization provided support and relief in philippine communities, tacloban city and cangumbang, by assisting with the reconstruction of schools, promoting, and establishing teaching opportunities, promoting nutrition and medical health programs for the public and providing personal care for individuals and families. In 2014, the goabroad foundation dedicated a great portion of time and fundraising efforts to rebuild communities affected by typhoon haiyan in the philippines. Over 150,000 usd was raised in total for these efforts, and were distributed to families to rebuild their homes, utilized by its local ngo partner to reconstruct one of their community centers, provide numerous feedings to children at risk of malnutrition, and supply relief distributions to families and communities in immediate need. The foundation also provided funds to its local ngo partner to reconstruct a classroom as well as a day care center demolished by the typhoon, and build multiple homes for local families. Near the end of 2014, the philippines was once again hit by a typhoon and tropical storm which caused landslides, flooding, and destruction across many islands. In the aftermath, the goabroad foundation helped support its local ngo partner in providing relief distributions and assessing local communities needs. The local ngo partner also continued its regular sponsorship program, through funding provided by the goabroad foundation, which provides over 150 children with access to education, monthly grocery subsidies, and daily feedings, as well as annual medical checkups and various other special activities. Funding from the goabroad foundation also supported ongoing community programs in the philippines, as implemented by our local ngo partner, such as school supply and water filtration system distributions. Additionally, the goabroad foundation formed a new partnership with a local ngo in uganda, and completed fundraising efforts to provide a water pump for a local school which will not only supply water to the community but also generate an income for the school to provide better educational resources to its students.

I've had the pleasure of working for and with the GoAbroad Foundation since 2013. We have grown the foundation immensely since then, and I'm very proud to continue to sponsor children in the Philippines because of the foundation. In recent years, we've expanded our partnerships in East Africa and India. I can't wait to see what we will continue to accomplish! Read more at www.goabroad.org.

We had an amazing experience volunteering with the Goabroad Foundation in the Philippines for two weeks. We got to work at an orphanage, teach in a local school, and help out at an orphanage. All of the local staff were outstanding - so helpful, caring, and attentive to our goals.

Being so closely involved in all of the work that the GoAbroad Foundation does on a daily basis has been an eye-opening experience. Not only are they supporting local organizations internationally, they are also creating opportunities for organizations to grow. I have been able to be a part of this process in helping develop a volunteer program for a new organization in Uganda, featuring incredible organizations on social media and blog platforms, and helping find new organizations for future partnerships.

The GoAbroad Foundation shines a light on all of the hard work their partners do in innovative and effective ways.

I was blessed to find an opportunity to sponsor a child in the Philippines through Go Abroad Foundation. I’m able to help send him to school, get health checks, and provide healthy food for him and his family. I’m able to send things for his birthday and Christmas, along with notes, pictures or cards. He sends notes to me and they send me updates and pictures. It has been a smooth process. I’ve enjoyed watching him grow the last several years. It is a joy to see how the Go Abroad Foundation is always finding new ways to help people all around the world.

I love the way the Goabroad Foundation reaches out to organizations all around the world (The Philippines, India, Africa...) to learn about their programs and needs. After researching and sometimes after onsite visits they determine if they should or how they can best help.

I have sponsored children in the Philippines and receive regular updates as to their health and progress. My funds have helped build a library and a community center. Currently I am working to provide uniforms for children at an orphanage in Africa so they can go to school everyday instead of sharing a uniform with other children and only being able to attend when it's "their turn" to wear the uniform.

I've worked with the GoAbroad Foundation as both a donor and a volunteer. The organization is well-run, transparent, and serves the needs of the communities they work with. It has been rewarding to see their programming expand to new regions. Well done, GoAbroad Foundation!

I have sponsored a child through the GoAbroad Foundation since 2012. The work that the GoAbroad Foundation does for the community is so incredible and needed. The Foundation also does a wonderful job of keeping sponsors updated about the community and children that they are sponsoring, sending frequent photos, letter and updates to each donor. I am so very impressed with this organization and the work that they have been doing for 20+ years.
