Who we are

Supporting Primary Schools Worldwide

The Gate 1 Foundation is passionate about supporting the education of the world's children. We work with schools around the world to provide resources that will enrich their days and nourish their minds.

Looking Ahead

Gate 1's regional staff reaches out to their local communities on an ongoing basis, identifying schools in need of support, and working with school officials to determine what kinds of projects will best and most directly improve the lives of children.
