In Suas we believe that everyone should be valued equally. Our vision is a world where all young people have access to education, so that they can realise their full potential. 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. This means as literate, global citizens children can escape the traps of poverty and have a better chance at the futures they deserve.
Since our beginnings 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 is at the core of our work. We believe in its transformational potential and we build it into all aspects of our work.
