“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." - Chinese Proverb
Size Foundation’s mission supports solutions that “teach a man to fish”. Our work primarily focuses on education as the means to empower children and young adults so they can take ownership of their lives. It is the foundation’s belief that the best way to affect communities and societies is by giving education to children and youth.
AIM: Size Foundation wants to support local involvement and self-sufficiency within communities through educational means.
This is the path to a sustainable future. Size Foundation's philosophy is based on the “Seven Generation Sustainability” inspired by the Great Law of the Iroquois. This philosophy states that all decisions should be wisely considered for their future impact on the children of the seventh generation. The Foundation believes education encourages and ignites positive change that strengthens present and future communities. This will in turn support and empower the children of the seventh generation.
