About HundrED

In a fast-changing world, education must adapt to help children thrive. The world is full of inspiring innovations, but they can struggle to spread beyond their immediate environments. That's why HundrED identifies impactful and scalable K12 innovations and helps them spread. 

HundrED.Org is a not-for-profit organization, which seeks and shares inspiring innovations in K12 education

The purpose of education is to help every child flourish, no matter what happens in life.

The world is changing faster than schools, but beautiful things are still happening in education all over the world. We call them education innovations: practices, programs, or organisations that are scalable and impactful in K-12 education. The world is full of them and they are helping children flourish, but it can be difficult for them to spread. 

We envision a future where every child has access to the best possible educational innovations that provide quality education for all.
