The Amish Heritage Foundation

About The Amish Heritage Foundation

The Amish Heritage Foundation is a history-making nonprofit committed to empowering Amish women and girls through education past the 8th grade, so they can exercise their human and constitutional rights to create and choose their futures.

We provide educational services to Amish people; develop and deliver cultural literacy training to agencies, institutions, and individuals; and foster public awareness about the crises hidden in Amish society.

We envision that one day Amish children will have the right to learn beyond the 8th grade — including the right to learn about STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), civics, law, philosophy, and the arts — and education will be a constitutional right for every US citizen.
