We work with governments and partner organisations to build new programmes that will deliver better school leaders, better teachers in classrooms and better results across the board.

The Varkey Foundation works all around the world to make sure that every child has a good teacher.

We’ve come a very long way in a very short time. So far, our programmes have trained 46,000 teachers in over 3,000 schools around the world and reached more than 1.6 million children.

We have transformed what leadership looks like in schools in Argentina and Uganda and used ground-breaking satellite technology in Ghana to deliver interactive lessons to refugee children and girls from underprivileged communities. All of our work is supported by our partners, including the Government of Argentina, the UK Department for International Development, the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) and USAID.
