We actively put people before profit.

We’re passionate about growing communities of global thinkers and explorers, at home and abroad – whatever their story. Young people from every walk of life who get a buzz from discovering new cultures, exploring new flavours, and learning what’s out there. But this isn’t an opportunity that’s open to all.

We set up our One-for-One Initiative to give something back to the world we love exploring. For every week a paying student studies with us, we give one week of learning away to someone who really needs it.


What we do

We give our time, knowledge, and funding to help children and charities in our student’s home countries.

Raising awareness is an important part of our work. We use our voice to actively participate in causes we believe in as often as possible. Our events programmes regularly include speakers from international charities and fundraising initiatives, and we get involved in events like International Women’s Day and Refugee Week.

And it goes beyond our personal efforts. We want our students to actively give back to the world around them and promoting our values by taking responsibility for people and planet.

Educating them and inspiring action, is a key measure of our success.

Why we do it

Global spirits aren’t just those that are lucky enough to be able to travel and learn abroad.

Adventuring across the world to study is an amazing and enriching experience that opens minds and changes lives, but it isn’t a door that’s open to all.

Our One for One Initiative gives young and disadvantaged people a chance to learn essential skills that will enrich their lives, whatever their journey in life. We want to inspire the next generation of explorers, wherever they are.


How we do it

We work with organisations that share and support our mission to provide education to those that most need it and use funds that would otherwise be classed as profit. 

For every week a student studies with us, we promise to donate a week to a charity from their country or region. We work closely with existing local charities and donate either a teacher or match the funding for lessons.

Who we're helping

We support young learners aged 12 to 16:

- From disadvantaged communities
- In our students' home countries
- Through partnerships with registered NGOs

Yazmin (17) – Children of Medellin:

"I have been part of the foundation for three years. The first years I took English lessons and last year I participated in the project 'Leadership in my community'. In the leadership project I learned about the dynamics of my neighbourhood. I researched the problems and wrote a project plan: setting up a software center where children and young people learn to program so that they can find work in it.I presented this plan to national and international organizations.

The director of the foundation, Wilmar, knows me and my home situation. He knows that I am well organized and disciplined and that we sometimes struggle economically at home. He gave me the chance at my first real job at the foundation to support in the administration. I help with various projects of the foundation. I like that I have a lot of contact with different people and children at work. It's very cool.

I am a go-getter and in the future, I want to study. That way I can help my mother, brothers, sisters and aunt to achieve a better financial situation, a better house and a better quality of life. And I can fulfil my dreams."
