carrosel__introThrough our work with key ​partners​ and with storied institutes of higher learning such as Harvard, Oxford, and Yale, the Lemann Foundation strives to guarantee access to high-quality public education for Brazilians of all backgrounds while supporting the development of leaders committed to the social transformation of Brazil.

Our impact:

Advancing Brazil’s education system - We’re providing teachers, administrators, and other educational leaders with the resources they need so every student can learn the right things at the right time. We’re also delivering technical support to foster the development of evidence-based educational policies that drive meaningful, systemic improvements for students over the long term.

Developing tomorrow’s leaders - We’re creating formalized processes and programs to unleash the power of the current and rising generations of leaders. These leaders are dedicated to social change and public sector participation in Brazil.

Why we are supporting the Teacher Tech Summit

The pandemic triggered the greatest crisis global education has ever faced, with more than 1.5 billion learners impacted by school and university closures. Even before the health crisis, the United Nations had warned that not enough progress was being made to achieve its Sustainable Development Goal of quality education for all by 2030. Our support to the Teacher Tech Summit aims to build systemic change by enabling inspirational teachers from all over the world to share their best practices and help others replicate their groundbreaking solutions.

Schools are essential to equipping future generations

"Schools are essential to equipping future generations with the tools they need to thrive in a fast-changing world. Brazilian education was hit hard by Covid, but our exceptional schools have shown tremendous resolve to keep students learning. The event will help teachers share best practices and innovative learning experiences to prepare children for the challenges of tomorrow."
