We have been quite busy in the past few months celebrating Cartier Philanthropy’s 5th anniversary. While we recognise that five years is a short time in the cycle of long-term development aid, we really wanted to mark the occasion.
Equipping students for life
“Don’t sit on the skills you’ve learned. Go out and practice them!” is one of the Educate! mottos. And it works: former Educate! students are around 50% more likely to find a job and 44% more likely to own a business.
Small & smart
Myanmar small farm’s development is key to reduce poverty and mitigate climate risks. In the last three years, our partner GRET worked closely with smallholder farmers in the Dry Zone, an arid region in the centre of the country.

Teaching the teachers
The beginning of September brings a new school term to millions of children around the world. But going to school is one thing, while the quality of education you receive there is another.
