We're an ambitious, education and social-change focused organisation. Our programmes support disadvantaged and under-resourced communities in Ireland, India, Kenya and Zambia.
Our vision is a world where all children and young people are given the opportunity to realise their full potential in life. Allowing them to go on to create positive change in their society. We believe in education as the means to achieve this vision.
We see education as key to social transformation and the first and most important step in changing lives. Our mission therefore is to transform lives through education. Meaning as literate, global citizens children can escape the traps of poverty and have a better chance at the futures they deserve.
Since our beginning in 2002 we've brought about change through our Ireland Education Programme, Volunteer Programme and more recently Fast Forward Programme. We offer quality basic education and 21st century skills to girls and boys from disadvantaged communities in Ireland, India and Sub-Saharan Africa. Our programmes impact the quality of education children are accessing and offer support to their teachers in learning skills and classroom techniques.
Through our Global Citizenship Courses we work with third level students to educate and equip them to be wiser global citizens. We better inform young people, helping them consider and challenge the inequalities that prevent others from having the opportunities they deserve by right.
Volunteering and mentoring are at the core of our work. We believe in its transformational potential and we build it into all aspects of our work.
