Pasifika-led Education

We work with schools to build the literacy capability of school leaders and teachers to accelerate learning outcomes for all students.

We partner across the Pacific Islands with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade and Pacific Island ministries of education to improve teacher practice and student literacy standards. We believe that cultural heritage, faith, family and service are important values to be passed from generation to generation.
