An Education of Hope

Thank you for your support this summer! We had an amazing conference this month in Doha, Qatar, sent more than 100 high school students abroad to learn Hindi, Arabic, Korean, and Mandarin, and are gearing up for our best back-to-school ever. Generous contributions by institutions and individuals like you have made it possible for students like the girls from Sewickley Academy in Pennsylvania (pictured above) to meet their Iranian peers in Doha and build the friendships we need for a more secure and prosperous future.

This fall, we expect more and more schools, districts, states, and federal agencies to join us to expand access to online exchange and project-based learning to to all students in the United States, regardless of socio-economic background, age or geographic location. We’re excited by the increasing interest in connecting classrooms globally.

 One day “the globally connected classroom” will simply be known as, “the classroom.”  You are helping us inch towards that very important and hopeful moment.

With much appreciation.

  1. iEARN is a hope for many educators and students as well as our families where it bridges between nations and cultures. It’s all about human interaction to make a fruitful change with the world.
