Lift the Lid, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that funds projects to support and develop the schools we sponsor and the students who attend them. Our schools are often the only hope for children brimming with talent and the desire to learn, and we place a particular emphasis on girls’ education.
In addition to our commitment to the schools, we believe encouraging the students to be creative instills confidence and hope. It also sends the message that we care. Sometimes that’s all it takes to reveal the hidden talent in children and to show them a better future.
Our two-fold mission, investing in the schools we sponsor, as well as the students by sharing their personal essays or poems, is a comprehensive, long-term approach to wellness and prosperity.
Our outreach includes: Kenya — Lenana Girls’ High School in Kitale, Mogonjet Secondary School in Kericho, and Keneni Academy Middle School in Kecheiyat. We also support The School in a Cart Children’s Center in Cubao, the Philippines, and Happy Family Children’s Village in Nkoaranga, Tanzania. We make visits and are in regular touch with our partners on the ground at each location.
Join us in our mission! When you give to one of our sponsored schools, you also show interest in a student’s work and receive a personal essay or poem.
