Educating for an Equal World


Irish Aid’s WorldWise Global Schools is Ireland’s national Development Education (DE) programme for post-primary schools.

It is funded by Irish Aid and implemented by a consortium of organisations:

WWGS was set up in 2013 as the key channel through which Irish Aid support for DE in post-primary schools is to be coordinated.The aim of the programme is to increase the number of post-primary schools engaging in quality development education by providing a comprehensive range of supports.
