Entity: Universal Education Foundation (UEF)
Project Type: Non Core
Duration of Support: Ongoing (2005 - )
The Universal Education Foundation is an advocacy foundation that works in co-creative partnerships towards "Education by all for the Well-Being of Children".
The education of children occurs both within the school environment and in every aspect of a child's life. Education is thus the responsibility of all and needs to be undertaken with greater awareness by the larger community.
UEF believes that children who experience a greater sense of holistic well-being (physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual) and understand its components are:
- more able to learn and assimilate information in effective ways;
- more likely to engage in healthy and fulfilling social behaviors;
- more likely to invest in their own and others' well being and in the sustainability of the planet, as they take up their social, professional and leadership roles in adulthood.
