"Give a starving person a fish and they will have food for a day; teach them to fish and they will have food for a lifetime."

We believe that through education, we can influence children's lives both now and for a lifetime, and through them we impact society. The majority of ESRA funds is earmarked for educational projects have been proven to be successful. Each project we initiate and run is in cooperation with a local authority.
