Education is a matter of human rights and should be open and accessible to everyone seeking it.


Since our establishment in 2006, our mission has been to ensure that education is available to everyone, especially those who might otherwise struggle to explore their talents. We firmly believe in education as a human right, with equal access to knowledge forming the foundation for a fairer and more equitable world.


At The Foundation Academy, we envision a world where education knows no borders—a future where quality academic education is accessible to all, regardless of background or circumstances. Our team is united in a shared vision and a solid commitment to making a difference in the lives of marginalized and discriminated individuals.




We understand that education isn't just about gaining knowledge; it's about empowerment and fostering a sense of purpose and dignity in our students. By providing access to programs in integrated human rights, global studies, and theology to those willing to overcome limitations, we enable our students to reach their full potential.


We use hybrid education methods to tailor our programs to our students' needs. Through distance learning and online lectures, we ensure that education is accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of their circumstances.
