Impacting Learners throughout Life

Learning starts early, happens lifewide, and in today’s ever-changing world, must be a lifelong endeavor. Together with our partners, we are dedicated to giving every individual the opportunity to thrive. We focus our efforts on three critical periods of development — early years, school-aged years (childhood / adolescence), and adulthood, across Africa, Latin America and the United States — and we organize our investments, interventions, and innovations along this continuum. This generational approach widens and deepens our impact, strengthening learners, their families, their communities and ultimately, our world.

Our Latest Learnings

We have an opportunity to change the traditional approaches to learning and schooling — transforming inequitable systems into thriving opportunities for communities of learners worldwide. From our work with partners, we see new insights, networks, tools and approaches, that are leading the way for more people to realize the future they imagined. And, as lifelong learners ourselves, we commit to contributing our learnings, insights, and perspectives back to our community as we learn them.
