Education for Sharing (E4S) is an action-oriented international education model with the mission of forming better citizens from childhood through innovative education based on the power of play.
At E4S, we use active and cooperative play to promote physical activity and transform children's social-emotional health while creating an awareness about the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We partner with schools, providing the tools and resources needed to ensure that every kid can experience safe and healthy play while understanding that they have an important role as change-makers from their local communities.
We empower teachers from a variety of school settings to foster social and environmental awareness about the SDGs while teaching values. Sports, science, arts, and project management “for sharing” are four programs under E4S umbrella that create a healthy environment in which children, teachers, and parents thrive as change-makers. Ultimately, children create and develop their own initiatives to solve their community’s most pressing issues while having fun.
Since its inception in 2007, E4S has worked with over 905,269 children, teachers, and families with important results in the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Argentina, the Dominican Republic, Panama, and Cuba. We are about to explore the South Pacific region starting in New Zealand.
