Mission: Edvillage is a global education organization that supports successful educators and education entrepreneurs seeking to create transformational schools and programs that prepare students from economically disadvantaged communities for higher education and life. Edvillage's work is primarily focused on schools and districts in south africa. The organization achieves its mission by selecting good schools, providing them with principal and teacher development as well as support to implement instructional practices that lead to higher levels of student achievement. For entrepreneurs, edvillage provides technical assistance and support during their business planning phase as well as ongoing operational and instructional leadership mentoring.
Programs: School leadership training and development and school support. In 2013, edvillage continued to provide school leadership training and development. Rather than manage a global fellowship program, edvillage focused on existing school leaders in south africa and one education entrepreneur. School leadership training and development, along with teacher training, remain the focus of edvillage's work. Edvillage's school support work focused on school improvement processes and a review of education law and policy.
