The Stena Foundation is an independent, private foundation created to help solve systemic, life-altering challenges standing between mere survival and an ability to thrive for individuals, families, and communities. It does this by improving the economic foundations of financial inclusion and access to quality education. The foundation works with partners to craft impactful investments, scalable solutions, and insightful data-driven research that uplifts individuals, families, communities, and economies. Steve and Jana Smith, the co-founders of the Stena Foundation, believe that financial inclusion and quality education can be a catalyst for change, and can break the chains of generational poverty to lift local economies.
