Why do we support education? Education changes our lives, through education we can achieve wisdom, freedom and can accept more responsibilities. Study abroad requires greater dedication and resources, but it also reveals new horizons. My husband, Zdeněk, departed from communist ruled Czechoslovakia while he was nineteen and one of his goals was to get top education in free country. He started at University of California in Berkeley and continued at Dartmouth College. Education became his best investment and today our foundation can support aspiring young people in getting the best education available.
