It is not enough for education to produce individuals who can read, write and count. Education must be transformative and bring shared values to life. It must cultivate an active care for the world and for those with whom we share it. " A quote by UN secretary-general Ban Ki Moon and one that lies at the very heart of everything we do. We think children deserve an education that helps them foster a greater understanding of the world so that they have the knowledge they need to develop as truly global citizens and the tools they need to shape a sustainable future that works to promote peace, active participation and mutual respect for mankind.
