Whether advocating for education on climate change, bringing floating educational programs to underserved communities, or using school gardens to teach about agriculture and nutrition, we distinguish ourselves as a bridge to shared learning.

Mission: Advocating for safest storage of radioactive waste
DIRECT PROGRAM | LAUNCHED IN 2018
With growing concern about global climate change, the Samuel Lawrence Foundation
organized the Climate Resilience Initiative to extend education towards clean energy technology, mediation-based communication, student-voter mobilization, and beyond.
Inspired by the youth, SLF joins community advocates and high school education efforts to advance a renewable energy future that addresses the radioactive waste piling up around the nation. SLF reinforces the power each individual has in becoming an informed voter who ensures their representatives advocate for the wellbeing of our communities.

Mission: To transform the region's waterways into pathways for education, information, and technology

Shidulai Swanirvar Sangstha, also known as Floating Schools of Bangladesh, was founded by Rezwan in response to Bangladesh's experience of changing weather patterns due to climate change. Recently, education programs traveling via this fleet of education boats have seen a 100% passing rate of student's annual exams, a 53% increase in family income, and success towards ending violence against children.
The success of the Floating Schools have been documented in books such as "A Floating School" and Hodder Cambridge's English as a Second Language textbook.

Mission: Cultivating healthy, happy, nature-connected kids
FISCAL SPONSOREE | PARTNERED IN 2014
Barrio Botany provides urban San Diego school students with garden-based experiential learning opportunities that improve academic achievement, enhance environmental literacy, and inspire lifelong health and wellness. The garden program creates a vibrant outdoor learning environment where students learn to grow fresh produce. Students gain horticulture knowledge, greater respect for their environment, and enjoy delicious food from their harvests.
The Samuel Lawrence Foundation encourages the development of the program and hopes to expand the life-changing program into common curriculum.
