La Salle International Foundation

Our Capabilities

Creative and Innovative Education

The De La Salle Brothers have a rich history of providing a vast array of educational services. With over 350 years of experience, they have developed creative and innovative programs which respond to the needs of the people they are serving. From pre-kindergarten programs all the way through to graduate and professional education, the De La Salle Brothers have developed award-winning educational programs to serve a variety of students. Many of their programs and reserach interests show particular sensitivity toward ecological interests as well as economically poor and/or socially excluded youth.

A Million People Every Day

We help sponsor works around the world and approximately one million individuals are impacted each day. The talented capabilities and dedicated service of our staff enables us to extend currently successful programs to other areas. A good idea which works in one city can successfully be used in another city because we have lots of horizontal communication, shared talents, and a deep capacity for staffing both educational operations and human service facilities.

Sharing Success Around the World

And good ideas aren't kept secret. Because we are an international family of institutions, success stories are shared across countries and around the world. When a need exists and funding is available, we help use the successful blueprints we already have, creatively tailor them to the environment, and then set up effective programs to address local concerns.

The La Salle International Foundation helps to sponsor innovative, effective, values-oriented programs around the world.
