Schools for Good

Our school community is proud to support the Varkey Foundation, our chosen charitable partner. The not-for-profit campaigner for change has committed to the following projects:

Training teachers to adopt a more student-centric approach in Uganda

- Supporting the professional development of teachers in Palestine

- Building the capacity of teachers in Kenya and Lesotho to teach science, technology and mathematics to girls and women

Educating students in Ghana via the country's first interactive distance-learning project

- Rebuilding a school in the Kenyan slum of Kibera

- Providing clean water and toilets in 25 schools in Tanzania with Dubai Cares and Oxfam

- Establishing ten low cost science centres in India with Pratham

- Rebuilding ten schools in Pakistan that were destroyed by floods with Dubai Cares and Oxfam

- Providing schools meals to improve access to education in India

- Supporting the UNICEF Schools for Asia programme in Philippines, Papua New Guinea, India, Nepal and Vietnam

We believe that by engaging with these projects, our students develop a better understanding of global development issues and the impact they can have in our world. 

Our aspiration is that, for every child enrolled at a GEMS school, we impact the lives of 100 underprivileged children in our world.
