Phelps Stokes Fund

The mission of the Phelps Stokes Fund is to address the educational needs of the urban and rural poor of Africa, the African Diaspora, and the United States with particular attention to the needs of people of color and Indians of the Americas. The Fund’s activity is founded on the conviction that true education depends on a fundamental respect for human dignity, the development of the full capacities inherent in each human being, and the cultivation of social harmony
