Education: The Core of our Work for Over 20 Years

Education is a fundamental tool that provides countless opportunities. It is a driving force for social change and is a way out of poverty. It is one of the most important aspects of personal development and welfare. This is why it is the core of our work.

We run education projects in many countries around the world. Our schools cater to the specific needs of the area they are serving, ranging from classrooms serving remote communities to campuses serving large groups of poor and disadvantaged children. Without these facilities they would not have access to schooling.

As well as building our own schools, we provide a varied range of educational programmes in many different areas around the world. This provides support to those who may have missed out on educational opportunities, or those who have specific educational needs.

Our work in education is all about providing opportunities, whether it is providing vocational training for young adults in Sri Lanka or supporting specialised learning for deaf children in Mali. We believe in empowering people to build a better future for themselves.
