CGEF is honoured to have the support of the following Trusts, Groups, Schools and Individuals. We thank you all for your ongoing support. 

CCfE Member - Commonwealth Consortium for Education

The CCfE has been established by a group of education-related Commonwealth NGOs to coordinate their efforts on behalf of Commonwealth education to stimulate more coherence in their work and to provide a collective mechanism for interaction with ministries and official Commonwealth organisations. 

CEC Member - Council for Education in the Commonwealth

The Council for Education in the Commonwealth (CEC), a parliament based NGO, was founded over 50 years ago, at the time of the first Commonwealth Education Ministers' Conference. Its purpose is to create an informed public opinion on the salient issues concerning education and training in the Commonwealth and to identify appropriate ways in which Britain and the European Union can best contribute to their development.
