Our Vision

To break the cycle of generational poverty and foster prosperity.

Our Mission

Provide opportunities for quality English language education, technology proficiency, and educational and vocational scholarships for children and young adults in underserved communities throughout South and Central Asia.

Our Belief

Every child and youth, regardless of financial circumstance, caste, religion, or gender deserves a chance to reach his or her maximum potential.

Project E3: English, Education, Empowerment

Featured Project

Global Virtual School

The Global Virtual School (GVS) is an ever-expanding online learning center delivering quality English-language instruction to underprivileged youth and young adults in remote areas of the world. Under the tutelage of the Worldwide Education Fund of The Dallas Foundation, and with the help of technology, GVS has grown from one online ESL class (in Khorog, Tajikistan) into a full-blown online school with dozens of classes and hundreds of students in only 3 and a half years.


The Global Virtual School project is unique in that it connects, online and in real-time, English-speaking volunteer teachers with students who are eager to improve their English to pursue post-secondary education, career training and better employment, all of which guarantee an escape from the cycle of generational poverty.

    For many years, Connie and Kamal Daya provided modest financial support to various orphanages, hostels, and schools. A trip to Asia in 2004 brought them face-to-face with the urgent needs of many institutions and they pledged to get engaged and ‘do more’.

    The Connie and Kamal Daya Gift Fund of The Dallas Foundation invited others who share their vision to participate in the initiatives designed to benefit under-served children and youth.
