Business for Good

Proud Sponsor of One Girl

Based in Kogarah and Turramurra, Global Education Academy has extensive knowledge in catering to the specific needs of NSW students. However, GEA also understands the way in which an education can change the life of any individual and provide them opportunities they would otherwise never be given. Recognising the lack of education provided to students in Africa, especially girls, GEA wanted to help change this.

Currently, young girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda face many challenges that prevent them from attending school and receiving an education they are completely entitled to. These barriers include:

  • A high chance of childhood marriage
  • Early and/or forced pregnancy, and
  • Poverty

As a result, GEA is a proud supporter of One Girl.

What is One Girl?

You may have heard of #doitinadress before. This is the fundraising campaign in which participants complete challenges in a school dress to raise money for African girls who are denied an education purely because they were born a girl.

The campaign was founded by the organisation One Girl, a charity devoted to empowering women through education.

In response to the shocking statistic that more than 130 million girls around the globe are not in school because of their gender, One Girl is on a mission to reduce this figure one girl at a time. They provide books, bags and uniforms, pay fees and offer social support and mentor programs to not only put girls in school, but help them get the most out of their time there.

At the time of writing, One Girl has provided 501 education scholarships to these girls!

How is GEA involved?

Global Education Academy is a business for good. We sponsor the UN Global Goals; our close to heart goals are Quality Education and Gender Equality. Every enrolment contributes to paying the fees for two girls in Africa (Sierra Leone and Uganda) to be educated for a whole year.

This means that:

  • The girls are less likely to be married as a child
  • Their income will increase by at least 10% for every year they attend school
  • They are less likely to endure the death of an infant child and,
  • They will most likely pass on their learnt knowledge to their children and send them to school as well

As well as this, they will be equipped with basic knowledge and life skills that many Australians take for granted.

Testimonials

Dear GEA staff and teachers, I can’t believe Ema’s Year 6 journey is over. The last 2 years were very difficult in many ways and obviously made Ema’s preparation for selective and scholarship exams quite challenging. I have to thank all of the GEA staff and teachers from the bottom of my heart as even though there was a lot of “unknown” in our kids’ lives they made Ema’s study journey so much easier. Clear communication, very approachable staff helping us to navigate with online learning and most of all dedicated teachers helping our kids with their preparation for the exams and overall progress in their studies…

I cannot Thank Global Education Academy enough, I thought by enrolling my son to a private school he is receiving the best education possible. I was so wrong.  Since kindergarten, his report was not that great, and I was a super concern, and whenever I raised my concerns with his class teacher I was told not worry, every kid is different and that he was doing well.

After reaching out to Global Education Academy within the first two weeks I could see the difference.  Homework is an easy task to do with no time at all, no calls or emails from the school, after school learning at Global is something he is looking forward to it. Even on Saturday he is happy to go.

I am not sure what magic spell Kate is using on my son, but it is working! Thank you, Kate, for making my son believe in his ability, I am super confident that he is in good hands. I cannot wait to see his school report.

If you are struggling to try to find answers on what to do to help your children to thrive in their learning, Global Education Academy is the solution

“Hello, I thought I’d share some positive feedback on my son, Zac, tutoring experience from GEA Kogarah. He thoroughly enjoys his lessons with Ms Caroline each week so much so he looks forward to them. He finds learning fun even being on zoom. I have to say that if it wasn’t for her tutoring “pro-ess” and ability to keep him engaged he would definitely be further behind with the impact of COVID / homeschooling. Please pass on thanks and kudos. Cheers”

“Just so you know yesterday I observed Aidan doing his online tutoring classes and I must say I was impressed. Your platform is much better than what his school is currently using and I actually think he enjoyed the work which is great! He seemed quite focused and engaged with what the class is doing which was good to see.”
