Innovative Solutions to Education Challenges

Childhood Education International (CE International) is an international development organization focused on developing and amplifying solutions that lead to positive change in pre-primary and primary-age children’s learning and lives. For over a century, we have been changing children’s lives for the better, paying particular attention to the most vulnerable children living in challenging circumstances.

We uphold education and learning as essential to the development of all people and societies. We also recognize that children are our hope for the future. Therefore, we must attend to children’s education, health, well-being, and safety so they can learn, grow, and develop optimally.

We design and deliver programs, trainings, and professional development experiences, and we offer consultancy services to education institutions, such as schools, NGOs, school systems, and government ministries. In conclusion, we help education leaders to be changemakers who resolve education challenges using innovative solutions.
