'Education That Pays For Itself' Conferences

Our conferences represent a unique opportunity to be part of community that is transforming education in developing countries by integrating entrepreneurship and financial sustainability into the fabric of schools. The events are also a chance to discover how new and innovative models are tackling key challenges in education across the developing world, such as:


  • How to provide high quality education without high fees?
  • How to finance improved facilities without outside support?
  • How to teach young people to succeed as entrepreneurs?
  • How to empower future generations to break out of the poverty trap?


From the 19th to the 21st November 2015 we welcomed 185 delegates to our first ever Asian conference in Delhi, India.

Being part of a community - learning, group work and fun! 

Unlike other events which are dominated by endless PowerPoint presentations, we focus on learning in small groups, and sharing expertise within solution-oriented workshops.


Our conferences are always based at schools to enable us to learn from our hosts. We also believe that much of the value in conferences such as ours comes from the working relationships formed, so we make sure there's plenty of time in the evenings for fun and getting to know one another.

Delegates’ feedback from our conferences:
