Our mission is to lead the development and growth of an improved education system supported by socially engaged business models that boost local economies while improving community livelihoods.



Our Projects are aligned to our strategic goals, which include Improving Education Quality, Gender Parity in Education, Innovation and Technology, and Health and Nutrition.



Founded by Dr. Tererai Trent, who overcame gender inequality in her own education, and was chosen by Oprah Winfrey as her “all-time favorite guest,” TTI succeeds because of the passionate commitment of an international team.
