Approximately 60% of the school age population is not enrolled in school.

This is widely due to the lack of a public school system. The Ekolaj Project partners with local privately run schools to provide students with tuition sponsorship.


Rachel is passionate about giving back to the community and is heavily invested in charitable work in her hometown of Houston. Her favorite volunteering times have always been spent working with children. Starting a foundation focused on education was an obvious next step.
