Enough was founded in 2009 as a local high school group. What started as a simple high school group, intended to bring together students of different faiths and ethnicities, soon grew into something much greater. Operating on two fronts: civil rights and humanitarianism, a group of about 100 students accomplished a great deal within the community and abroad. Students around the country took notice, and the group expanded in 2010 to 12 new chapters across the Northeast. The Enough Foundation was founded in the Spring of 2010, as the umbrella group for all of these chapters.
Today, The Enough Foundation is governed by a national board that oversees the activities of the high school and now college chapters, and focuses mostly on large scale project development.
It is our hope that the children we help may emerge as leaders to help their generation improve the ailments of their communities, and rebuild crucial relations with the West.
The organization also concentrates a great deal of effort on disaster relief and has led and supported programs around the world.
Now, The Enough Foundation takes on silence.
The Enough Foundation works to provide youth with pertinent resources that encourage social progress and self-sustainability. We focus on answering the needs of marginalized communities through implementation of long-sighted projects that work with these communities, rather than working against or in absence of. We leverage the following to meet these goals:
- By improving the quality of education in these communities to meet a dichotomous demand of children and parents, we provide solutions for students and parents seeking immediately employable vocational skills, while also elevating the quality of more traditional subject schooling to best prepare these students for both continued education and the demands of the market itself.
- By ensuring that the children of the communities we work in are safe, both physically and emotionally.
- By responding to and approaching cultural and societal problems appropriately and with care, we make use of already existing mediums of communication to most effectively engage with the community.
The Enough Foundation is a student-led organization of college and high school students. While we are primarily a United States based organization, we additionally have chapters in the United Kingdom, as well as in Pakistan.
