LONDON, 12 September 2019 —Nord Anglia Education (NAE), the world’s leading premium schools group, today published the impact report for its Share a Dream outreach charitable activities.
During the 2018-19 academic year more than US$650,000 was raised by students, teachers and staff at NAE schools as part of ongoing philanthropy efforts across the organisation. In addition, 76,000 volunteering hours for good causes were recorded.

The Share a Dream online platform equips students, teachers and staff with a host of fundraising and volunteering tools to support communities across the world. Using the platform, NAE schools plan, execute and report on the ways they are affecting change.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer, Nord Anglia Education, said: “Our students are tomorrow’s change makers and we believe in nurturing the skills and creativity they need to make a difference in the world.”
“We’re proud of the incredible volunteering and fundraising efforts taking place in our schools. These are much more than just extra-curricular activities; we view these efforts as an integral part in any student’s education,” Mr Fitzmaurice said.
