GEMS Education

In 2011, the Varkey GEMS Foundation (GEMS), in partnership with UNESCO, commited to provide leadership and professional development training to 10,000 school principals in Kenya, Ghana, and India over the next four years. GEMS will fund and develop a series of two-day train-the-trainer seminar and leadership capacity-building content that will enable principals to train their co-workers and peers. GEMS and UNESCO will develop a curriculum for each nation involved in the commitment; establish baseline metrics to enable long-term evaluation; and develop a long-term formal support network. Ultimately, GEMS efforts to train 10,000 school leaders will positively impact the educational experience of at least 10 million children.
