Arian Simone’s Fearless Foundation — a 501c3 organization from the Fearless Fund — is taking its efforts to the Ivory Coast.

ESSENCE reports that the co-founder joined forces with ProSeed Foundation to support elementary school students.

A New Elementary School

Simone and the nonprofit organization are working to build a new elementary school — the Arian Simone Fearless Leadership Academy. Once completed, the classrooms will be filled with children specifically from the Dawa Grand Berebi Village.

According to the outlet, the school is set to open in October 2022.

ProSeed Foundation

Per its website, the Louisiana-based foundation’s mission is to construct and renovate schools in developing countries, promote STEAM education, and empower the next generation of leaders.

ProSeed Foundation is committed to helping underserved villages and ensuring there are multiple sustainable education institutions. The outlet notes that “the organization has propelled students’ academic success rates on national exams from 40 percent to almost 90 percent.”
