A NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR THE 21st CENTURY
In 2017, the International Foundation of Learning entered into a partnership with the Visioneers International Network to support the work of the Network to create a Virtual Exposition of a Web of Good Work that showcases outstanding projects and work by individuals to promote a peaceful and sustainable future.
The second purpose of the Visioneers International Network is to create a global platform that will enable members to connect with each other across the world and be mentored by those doing exceptional work in order to replicate and promote projects of good work for the world.
The role of the International Foundation of Learning is to sponsor initiatives that will aid in the development of the Visioneers Web of Good Work.
