Global Schoolroom seeks to promote the sharing of educational experience between communities worldwide to help eradicate poverty, promote economic development and build sustainable communities. In furthering this goal Global Schoolroom works directly with teachers and communities to build a strong framework for high standards of teacher education. Once in place, the Global Schoolroom programme is designed to be sustained by local networks.

This is achieved through the forging of respectful links between educational partners to their mutual benefit. This sharing of good educational practices enriches the collective educational experience, widens the cultural horizons of everyone involved and expands each individual’s scope for opportunity. Children in the communities involved receive a better quality education which ultimately leads to greater economic development and higher standards of living.
