The Sonder Project

About The Sonder Project

Sonder – The realization that each and every random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. Each with a story to tell. Each with a story worth hearing

The Sonder Project is a global nonprofit organization focused on high-impact, sustainable solutions aimed at ending extreme poverty and hunger worldwide.


PROJECT: educate
Education lays the foundation for a successful future, yet there are nearly 900 million people worldwide who cannot read or write. The Sonder Project aims to change this number and by giving impoverished areas the tools that they need to create new opportunities, thus breaking the cycle of poverty. In 2015, the organization built two primary schools in Burkina Faso, Africa and they hope to build even more schools in remote villages in 2016.
