Universal education must be relevant to the true needs of a community and contribute to the unification of mankind. It must enable people both to move in the direction of their own choosing and help them appreciate those universal qualities that distinguish the entire human race. A well-educated community member is a determined yet humble participant, who helps overcome conflict and division thereby contributing to a spirit of unity and collaboration. Education is the common thread throughout the majority of all Binda grants.

Voces: As a Foundation that promotes learning throughout the lifespan, the Latino Youth & Parent Engagement Program is designed to engage Latino/Hispanic parents to enrich their own leadership capacity so that they are more prepared to assist their children to succeed in school. This culturally-specific program will also build cross-cultural understanding in our community.
