We believe that education empowers people.

We offer children, youth, and adults access to high-quality education so they can improve their opportunities.

When individuals study, their self-esteem improves because they realize the potential they have to transform their lives and communities.

“We have two daughters who cannot go to school because we came from the US and I have not been able to sort out their documents. Amextra helps us a lot because my daughters have been coming to classes and their progress has been notable. In Spanish, my daughters have improved their skills by 70%. They have learned to divide, subtract, add, multiply and work with fractions. Now, one of my daughters works with Ms. Ruth counting money because that has been difficult for her. I think it is because she is used to American currency. With Ms. Ruth’s help, I know that my daughter will learn quickly”.

“At some moments the parents and the children cried when they realized that they were all caught up in violence—the parents who had experienced violence as children, hit their own children, they yelled at them and they would tell them that they did not have time for them. Many parents asked their children for forgiveness and admitted to themselves that they needed to change their behavior”.
