#iEARN is the best kept secret that should be shared with every educator that wants their students to become globally aware and involved. Educators and students are provided with a safe , but engaging platform to share and develop project based learning projects or other projects that simply facilitate global and cultural excitement among students and their teachers in a way not offered in the general curriculum! I cannot express how much the content of this group has enhanced the learning of my students and provided me with an international cadre to build friendship and professional foundations with.

I have seen this organization grow from 10 schools in Moscow and 10 schools in NY State to over 40,000 schools in about 120 countries; and do it with no loss of integrity and sense of mission. It is a testimony to the philosophy and the thousands of mostly volunteers, teachers and students.

Our foundation has been funding iEARN since 1988. I consider it to be the best investment we have made. When we started investing there were 9 countries and about 90 teachers impacting about 400 children. Today there are 130 countries, an estimated 36,000 teachers impacting over 3,000,000 children. When we provided seed money, we were donating about $150,000/year and iEARN's budget was about $400,000/yr. Now, because of their success, we provide funding in the two digits and their budget has increased to over $4,000,000/yr.! I would call that money well spent!
