Photo contest winner

photo (3)Farther Foundation provides scholarships for low-income high school students to travel around the world having life-changing experiences. Each year they share their photos with us and we select our favorites in our annual photo contest. This year’s winner came from Alicia who traveled to Tanzania and took this photo of a Masai community member looking out over the plains.

Farther Foundation was founded with the belief  that a chance to travel for a few weeks to a place like Tanzania would awaken, in a bright student like Alicia, the confidence and aspiration to change the trajectory of her life.

Farther Foundation has awarded more than $180,000 in scholarships to 84 students who have participated in educational programs in 20 states as well as 28 countries on six continents. They have immersed themselves in the language and culture of host families in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa, studied on 15 college campuses, helped build villages in third-world countries and participated in archeological digs in the Southwest.  The travel opportunities the Farther Foundation sponsored have had a profound, and undeniably life changing effect on the students participating in the program.

We need your help to continue this  success.  The tax deductible funds you give go directly to supporting the students involved in the educational travel.  We hope we can count on your support this year to help more students achieve their highest potential. Our students greatly appreciate your generous contributions and you can count on them to take full advantage of the opportunities you help provide. You can contribute via credit card or PayPal online at www.fartherfoundation.org.

Go Farther!
