Our Impact

Everything we do at illuminate Education is centred around making positive impacts, for students and the communities in which they live.


Differences in evaluation surveys conducted before and after programs demonstrate the direct impact our programs have on students. Self-reported improvements in confidence, creativity and capability as well as skills including presenting, financial literacy and teamwork show this.
