Helping children take the first step on the path to opportunity

What we are doing

Finding regions

The Acronis Schools Initiative finds underserved and neglected communities where children and adolescents suffer from a lack of educational infrastructure and poor learning environments.

Building schools

Working with non-profit organizations worldwide, the Acronis Schools Initiative builds schools that meet the unique needs of each community and helps find to solutions to the infrastructure challenges that can affect a school’s effectiveness.

Improving lives

By building the schools needed to spread knowledge in underserved regions of the world, we plant the seeds of opportunity for individuals, families, and communities.

Why we are doing it
