Improving the lives of children living in poverty around the world through education.
Vision. Global Education Fund (GEF) is committed to helping children see possibilities beyond what they experience every day and we work to give children the opportunity to make a difference in their lives and communities. Through education, we envision each child having access to the greater world and the opportunity to participate in it.
Values. GEF stays true to the following values in deciding which educational initiatives to support:
Locally led. Listen to people in the communities we serve to understand local needs.
Collaborative. Partner with leaders who have the skills and experience to address those needs.
Innovative. Leverage resources to create sustainable, innovative solutions.
Accountable. Demonstrate accountability, integrity and transparency for maximum impact.
GEF focuses on programs in three high need countries that also have qualities for success: Kenya, India and Guatemala.
