About the Luminos Fund 

The Luminos Fund believes that no child should be denied the chance to learn. Launched in 2016, Luminos was founded to scale up the Second Chance program, an accelerated learning program that enables children who have been kept out of school by conflict or poverty to catch up to grade level and return to learning – all in ten months. We operate programs in Ethiopia, Liberia, and Lebanon, where we work with Syrian refugees. To date, we have helped over 130,000 children secure a second chance to learn. Luminos was launched with a strategic commitment from the Legatum Foundation in 2016. Since then, a series of premier philanthropic organizations have joined our cause, including UBS Optimus Foundation, Dubai Cares, and Cartier Philanthropy. Luminos has been recognized for its achievements globally, receiving the HundrED Education Innovation Award three years in a row and the WISE Award.
