Below is a selection of coperations, nonprofit organisations and public sector entities who have joined the Global Partnerships Forum.
The mission of the IDP Foundation, Inc. is to mobilize resources and strategic support to increase educational opportunities and other initiatives that we feel add value to education. We believe that education is the way to conquer the world’s greatest challenges. We believe that everyone on the planet should have equal access to education to provide hope and opportunity. We believe that a combination of smart philanthropy and investment can galvanize solutions to make that future a reality.
