Public-Private Partnerships

Partnering with the private sector is essential to improving education worldwide because it offers opportunities to make programs more sustainable and allows more people to access them. World Education successfully brings private and public groups together in partnership to achieve goals that benefit all groups involved—in particular the communities they’re trying to reach.

World Education engages private partners in a variety of ways. We work with corporations, engaging professionals to become mentors to students who aspire to similar career paths. By partnering with technology companies, we ensure that learners have access to countless resources available via mobile phones and the Internet. In developing countries, many people’s livelihoods depend on producing goods to sell. We establish direct relationships with the industries that often purchase these goods, so that program beneficiaries can better tap into the global market. World Education has also partnered with companies to provide children with essential items they need to be successful in school, such as textbooks and backpacks, sanitary pads, and shoes.

While we focus on developing and implementing programs to improve the quality of life in developing countries, harnessing the skills and resources of the private sector only serves to enhance our impact.
