VISION: TO ADDRESS POVERTY THROUGH THE PROVISION OF EDUCATION IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, APPLYING HOLISTIC, COMMUNITY-LED, SCALABLE AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PRACTICES.
School for Life has been built on the joint principles of capacity development and community empowerment. This means we provide a hand-up not a hand-out.
We believe that education can change everything and we aim to provide a high-quality education to those who need it most, so they can have an impact and change the communities where they live.
MISSION: TO SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASE THE PROVISION OF EDUCATION AND RELATED SERVICES, INCLUDING EMPLOYMENT AND HEALTHCARE BY WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH EMERGING COMMUNITIES IN COUNTRIES AROUND THE GLOBE.
We will do this by:
- Building and operating schools that are aligned with the needs of the community.
- Encouraging and enabling productive and sustainable community-based economic development, to reduce the reliance on hand-outs.
- Promoting and advocating the benefits of investing in education.
We value transparency, empowerment, sustainability and integrity. We are passionate and we aim to be responsive and effective in everything we do.
