In 2015, the United Nations published seventeen Sustainable Development Goals intended to set out priorities for the International Community in creating a better future for the world. The fourth of these calls for universal access to quality education that is inclusive and equitable and for the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities. At the Foundation, we are proud to work toward making this goal a reality.
Education is transformative and powerful. We believe that by forging partnerships, by broadcasting information, by stimulating activity and by working closely with teachers, educators, communities and governments to offer practical support and encouragement to education projects worldwide, we can make the UN’s dream of a world enriched by learning into a dream shared by millions and, together, secure its realisation.
Our organisation is inspired by the work and philosophy of Steve Sinnott, who served as General Secretary of the National Union Of Teachers until his death in April 2008.
