    Bridge believes every child has the right to high quality education and works in partnership with governments, communities, parents and teachers to deliver education to over 100,000 children in underserved communities across Africa and Asia.

    Bridge leverages in-depth teacher training and support, advanced lesson plans and wireless technology to provide pupils with a meaningful and life-changing education.

    Globally, there is an education crisis. Around 263 million children and young people are not in school and the number of primary school aged children not in school is increasing.

    Bridge is committed to helping tackle this through a data driven, evidence based approach that delivers strong schools and a great education for all.

    The Bridge Approach

    Education is in crisis in many countries around the world. It is estimated that 264 million children and young people are out of school, and 330 million children are in school but not learning.

    In addition, an extra 69 million teachers are needed to achieve the 2030 UN education goals.

    Many education systems are plagued with inadequate materials and poor management systems, all leading to chronic teacher absenteeism and a lack of learning.

    Education reform is challenging but it is urgently required if we are to prevent another generation of children missing out.

    So, we work in partnership with governments, NGOs and non-state actors to address the huge education imbalance between what is available and what is needed right now we work to bridge the gap.

    We believe parents have the right to choose a school for their children and we enable families to enjoy seeing their children learn, improve and flourish at Bridge schools.

    We locate our schools in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the world. Families in our communities can be earning just $1.

    90 per person a day; a level the World Bank notes is at extreme poverty. By putting learning at the centre of all we do, Bridge has become an extremely popular choice for underserved families and low-income communities

    With plans to enrol ten million students ten years from now, Bridge offers a tremendous opportunity to grow with one of the world’s most exciting and ambitious social enterprises, with leadership roles available across a number of competencies and geographies.
