Lemann Foundation

Quality education for all Brazilian children
Leaders focused on Brazil's social development

We develop and support innovative educational projects. We conduct studies to support public policies. We offer training to education professionals to improve leadership in several areas.

Founded in 2002 by Jorge Paulo Lemann, the Lemann Foundation is a non-for-profit family organization. Through our initiatives and actions we seek to contribute so that by 2018 Brazil will have high-quality innovative solutions in the educational life of 30 million people; 200,000 more teachers able to guarantee the learning of all students; a clear standard of high expectations about what all students are required to learn and 65 leaders promoting and accelerating high-impact social transformations.
