Improve a Child's Education by Educating Leaders

Blog Archives:

Recently, the Canadian Christian Relief & Development Association (CCRDA) emailed out the first 2019 edition of Excellence at Work. Our very own, Hannah Vermeer, contributed to this latest CCRDA newsletter edition regarding our Global Education Summit.

If you want to improve a child’s education, start with their leaders.

EduDeo Ministries is convinced that the best way to improve education for students is to invest in the leaders, principals and teachers. Every year, we facilitate trainings, workshops and conferences with our partners. But how can we move from individual investment to building a global community of educational leaders? Our answer: The Global Education Summit.

From September 16-29, 2018, 18 key leaders from 8 EduDeo partners travelled to Canada to participate in this event. They visited Christian schools in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario; met with Board members, Staff and friends of EduDeo; and attended the Christian Schools Canada Leadership Conference in Ottawa, Ontario.

Our vision for the Summit was to accomplish two main goals:
1. To build a professional global learning community.
2. To review the vision and mission of EduDeo.

We are advancing Christ-centred education around the world together. We are not working in competition with each other, but together as a community of leaders.

In reviewing why we do what we do, our passion was multiplied. Both our partners and our staff were reminded that the heart we have for Christ-centred education is the same across the world. We are all driven by the same desire: to see communities transformed by the Gospel.

Of her experience, Yadira from Belize reflected:

“As a young leader, I have found that this [Summit] has challenged me to rethink and evaluate what I have been doing in my school. It has challenged me and redirected me to remember our main purpose in education – transformation of the whole life.”
