Trees for Life is committed to empowering people to improve their own lives. One of the main ways we do that is through education. We help create models where children living in poverty receive a quality, modern education comparable to that offered at the best schools. The goal is to equip such chidren to qualify for, and even create, jobs in our modern world.
Umrao Singh Memorial School
One of the schools we help is Umrao Singh Memorial School (USMS) in Allahabad, India. Founded by a widow who dedicated her life to educating girls from poor families, it has now served more than 20,000 children.
