Last month, UNESCO published a comprehensive assessment of the global state of education. In the 11th Education for All Global Monitoring Report, an independent team of experts describes how a “global learning crisis” is preventing tens of millions of children from receiving a quality education. The experts’ recommendations mirror the philosophy on which School-to-School International was founded in 2002 — ensuring that every child is able to thrive in the classroom.
Poised to broaden our reach, we are gearing up for a busy 2014 at STS. We aim to double the impact of our Whole Child Model when the next school year starts in the fall. We will also host several networking events in the Bay Area in the coming months. We have hired new staff to join our growing team. All of this work has one overarching goal in mind — creating the conditions of success for every child.
Your support has been indispensable, enabling us to reach thousands of students, parents, and community members and scores of teachers.
Since 2010, self-described philanthropy wonk Lucy Bernholz has published an annual forecast on philanthropy and the social economy. The visiting scholar at Stanford University and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation defines the social economy as “all the ways we use private resources for public benefit,” including not only nonprofit organizations, but also social businesses and social welfare organizations.
