The Unstoppable Foundation is a nonprofit humanitarian organization that empowers lives through education and moves communities in developing countries from surviving to thriving so that every person can realize their full potential. The Foundation's approach to creating sustainable education is a proven, holistic 5-Pillar development model called Sponsor A Village (SAV). SAV incorporates everything crucial to lifting communities out of poverty and removing obstacles to educating children by providing access to primary education, clean water and sanitation, healthcare, food and nutrition, and income training for parents. To ensure students are able to gain employment in their community and increase the standard of living for themselves and their families, the Unstoppable Foundation awards full scholarships to qualifying high school graduates in the Maasai Mara region of Kenya through their Unstoppable Scholars program. Unstoppable Scholars receive a state-of- the-art education that combines theoretical studies with technical training, placements and internships. Students also receive leadership and empowerment training – enabling them to achieve their full potential as leaders in their families, communities and the world at large. One hundred percent of donations to the Unstoppable Foundation fund our international programs. To learn more about the Unstoppable Foundation, visit www.UnstoppableFoundation.org.
