TAMTF supports high schools in developing countries to adopt Education That Pays For Itself an innovative approach designed to transform children from the poorest of families into economically successful graduates. This approach overcomes access barriers by creating schools which are virtually free and focused on the entrepreneurial and practical skills needed for young people to lift themselves out of poverty. Graduates from a TAMTF school typically earn 2.5 times as much as their peers. Unlike alternative efforts the TAMTF model is financially sustainable allowing schools to run indefinitely without additional funding.
