5,000 CAN Program to Create Sustainable Education for Children


LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On the eve of this year's International Day of the Girl Child, The Unstoppable Foundation (www.unstoppablefoundation.org) has kicked off its unprecedented 5,000 CAN campaign to bring sustainable education to an additional 5,000 of the world's most vulnerable children during 2015. Founder and CEO Cynthia Kersey and legendary sports agent Leigh Steinberg revealed the ambitious program at an invitation-only donor luncheon in Los Angeles.

"The inspiration for the 5,000 CAN initiative was ignited by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by the Taliban because of her courageous stand for an education.  We are inspired by Malala's commitment and promised her that we will not stop until this critical mission of education for every child is achieved," said Kersey.

The Unstoppable Foundation is taking action by funding programs that deliver long-term sustainable education in sub-Saharan Africa, where the need is greatest.  In a region of Africa where one in ten children dies before the age of five and 12 year-old girls are married off, The Unstoppable Foundation delivers a comprehensive approach to uplifting the entire community out of extreme poverty.

"Education for every child is the greatest human rights movement of our time.  The new 5,000 CAN campaign challenges us all to create a future for the next 5,000 children -- many of them girls -- who are deprived of their right to go to school.   If one child can change the world, imagine what 5,000 can do," Kersey said.

Since The Unstoppable Foundation was established during 2008, 6,028 children are receiving an education and daily nutritious meal, and more than 20,000 people have access to the five pillars of education, clean water, sanitation, healthcare, food and nutrition, and adult income training.  The Unstoppable Foundation partners with organizations on the ground to implement their programs and create self-sustaining communities that are based upon the five pillars.

The Unstoppable Foundation is a non-profit humanitarian organization bringing sustainable education to children and communities in developing countries, thereby creating a safer and more just world for everyone.
