WHO WE ARE

G.E.G. is a group of educators brought together from around the world who share a common goal with B2THEWORLD — to provide a transformative educational experience for children and families in countries that are recovering from war.

WHAT WE DO

We bring school leaders from around the world together to learn, collaborate, and navigate the challenges that they face in their various school settings. Aside from the training and insight from Dr. Thomas and other B2THEWORLD staff, we bring in experienced facilitators to lead impactful sessions with an emphasis on useful tips and knowledge that can be put into practice by the attendees of the gathering.

OUR REACH

Our inaugural G.E.G. was held in Kigali, Rwanda in November of 2018 and was attended by school leaders from 8 different countries on 4 continents. This gathering was a way for them to network with B2THEWORLD leadership and plant the seed for future partnerships.

OUR GOAL

Is to grow the project to expand beyond an annual gathering in Rwanda. As we form relationships with educational leaders worldwide, we hope to empower them to host their own gatherings, which will increase the impact of GEG in their specific regions of the world. We will also expand the scope of the project to one day include offering training for teachers and support staff in addition to leadership.

NEXT STEPS

We bring school leaders from around the world together to learn, collaborate, and navigate the challenges that they face in their various school settings. Aside from the training and insight from Dr. Thomas and other B2THEWORLD staff, we bring in experienced facilitators to lead impactful sessions with an emphasis on useful tips and knowledge that can be put into practice by the attendees of the gathering.
