Promoting STEM Education in Developing Nations

I recently became acquainted with the Benignant STEM Innovation Foundation, which promotes education in math and science in order to open up opportunities for children, especially girls, in developing countries. Check out their website for information about their mission and educational initiatives that help poor students pursue a better life for themselves, their families, and their communities.
