To be the world’s leading provider of quality education, enriching the lives of millions of children and the communities in which they live.
GEMS Education works across three sectors in order to achieve its vision.
In the Private Sector it is making private education more accessible to communities by providing a range of school models with different price points and curricula, thus making private education more affordable.
In the Public Sector we are working with Governments to deliver efficient, high quality public education provision globally.
Through our philanthropic arm, the Varkey GEMS Foundation, we are improving the standards of education for underprivileged children.

The sheer diversity of nationalities in GEMS schools provides students with a unique opportunity to interact with students from around the world, enhancing their experience of other cultures and belief systems for a unique international learning perspective.
To achieve its vision in the three sectors, GEMS Education is building partnerships with organizations, NGOs and international agencies that share our commitment to promoting access to quality education to children across the globe.
