Varkey Foundation

The Varkey Foundation believes every child deserves a vibrant, stimulating learning environment that awakens and supports their full potential. They believe nothing is more important to achieving this than the passion and quality of teachers. They support global teaching capacity and seed excellence and innovation in the next generation of educators.

The Foundation has pioneered an ambitious programme to train 250,000 teachers across Africa that is winning plaudits from Government and NGO leaders across the region. The aim is to impact 10 million children. They also produce leading eduation research such as the 2013 Global Status index, the first comprehensive attempt to measure teacher status across the world. They also founded the Global Teacher Prize to shine a spotlight on the incredible work teachers do all over the world.

The Varkey Foundation has appointed Apollo as its global PR agency.
