Our Vision: LPGM envisions a world where relationships transform boundaries and where all people have the resources and opportunities they need to thrive.
Our Mission: LPGM provides access to quality education for people at the margins–especially women and girls. We work together with global partners to listen, respond and bear witness to local needs and priorities.
