IMPROVING THE LIVES OF CHILDREN LIVING IN POVERTY THROUGH EDUCATION
Global Education Fund is committed to helping children see possibilities beyond what they experience every day and we work to give children the opportunity to make a difference in their lives and communities. Through education, we envision all children having access to the greater world and an opportunity to participate in it. Our job is to find the organizations best able to create local change and then provide them with the resources they need to accomplish their goals. We fund on the basis of their current efforts and their potential for impact and sustainability. We invest in strong entrepreneurial leaders who are grounded in their local cultures and are driven to improve educational outcomes and sustain their impact.
Efforts by local educators and community leaders show real promise for creating lasting change; however, they often lack the resources they need to refine, sustain, and grow their solutions. This is where Global Education Fund comes in. We offer small, multi-year grants and technical support, including capacity building, mentoring and networking.
We work directly with local educators and their organizations – through funding and other support – to sustain and grow their initiatives. We focus on efforts which improve the quality of education for the most marginalized children and we promote the exchange of ideas between our partners and across geographic borders.
