Abstract: Astronomers Without Borders serves underserved and isolated schools and the public worldwide by providing astronomy resources for STEM education. Recent examples include telescopes for a STEM education program for girls in Nigeria, and telescopes and other astronomy resources for isolated schools in Puerto Rico. Support augments already existing local programs. Inclusive grassroots astronomy programs provide hope and inspiration through connections to those in other countries. Astronomy for the physically impaired is also a growing area.
