Our Story

Kunal Doshi and Becca Wolin had a dream in 2012 to see an increasing number of people help end poverty by providing kids with a better education. They started Brighter Children, creating a way for supporters to sponsor educational costs for students who couldn’t otherwise go to school. The first fundraiser event in 2013 proved there were supporters for this idea. Last year, Brighter Children supporters funded the education for 60 students in three countries. In 2015, we sponsored 150 students.

Now there’s a team of passionate volunteers reaching more supporters, helping more children graduate and bringing us closer to a world without poverty. Meet the team.
