The Foundation for Social and Cultural Advancement

The Foundation for Social and Cultural Advancement EMPOWERING women and girls for positive social CHANGE through EDUCATION. The Foundation for Social & Cultural Advancement (Foundation SCA) is an independent organization that began in Washington DC in 2008 with a dream to help women and girls around the world through the power of education.

We are currently collaborating with local organizations in CAMEROON, KENYA, SLOVENIA, POLAND, RUSSIA, and the USA (Chicago and Washington, DC) to provide professional and skills education, character and academic development for elementary, high school, and university students. Foundation SCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Mission: At Foundation SCA, we seek to build bridges to opportunity for women around the world. We do this by partnering with local organizations that provide girls and women with opportunities and training to advance their social, cultural, and economic potential within their communities.
