Each LEAP program uses an experiential and diverse curriculum designed to:

Transform a dominant pattern of material and financial handouts into unlimited, deliberate partnerships based on equality, empowerment and education.

Connect money, community, education and empowerment with three distinctions:

  1. Poverty is defined as the loss of human potential

  2. Philanthropy is a love for humanity that requires equality and is actually not about money

  3. Money by itself is ineffectual and needs community commitment, education and empowerment to have a sustainable effect.
