Other information:
We believe in education as a long-term investment to tackle poverty. We also believe that education is the best tool to combat intolerance, violence and aggression; prejudice, hatred, war, racism, sexism, indifference and ignorance. Education creates the infrastructure for future economic development and growth that will provide many times more returns for the communities and countries that make this investment in their children. We are aware of more urgent and dramatic needs in many countries in the developing world – security and hunger among them; however, we are taking the long-term approach to fighting poverty. We need to specialize to be most effective; therefore we are choosing teaching English.
