Our Vision

– a worldwide community of teachers and learners striving for universal access to quality education and on-going improvement of teaching and learning.

Our Mission

To build relationships and work alongside communities supporting access to learning worldwide for all children and young people with a commitment that access must be available regardless of age, gender, sexuality, politics, religion, disability, or ethnic group.

We involve local communities, local teachers and educators, and local governmental structures in a transparent and co-operative way of working. We promote programmes that are fit for purpose, sustainable and replicable using elements of an education model that promotes positive learning experiences.

We have a strong commitment to promote the use of communications and related technology for educational purposes. We believe that there are enormous opportunities to use this technology imaginatively and creatively in the achievement of our aims.
