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.
