The Mission of the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Global Education is to accelerate affordable access to education and training worldwide. The ultimate goal is free, quality education to everyone, everywhere.
The “Patron Saint” of the Institute is Ben Franklin who championed free universal education. He did this at a time when only children from wealthy families were taught “reading, writing and arithmetic.” Read more about this aspect of Ben Franklin here.
