Educating for an Equal World


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

WWGS was set up in 2013 as the key channel through which Irish Aid support for GCE 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 global citizenship education by providing a comprehensive range of supports.

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

  • Self Help Africa
  • Concern Worldwide
  • The City of Dublin Education and Training Board Curriculum Development Unit (CDU).
