Franks Family Foundation
The Franks Family Foundation’s mission is to contribute to making the world a more educated, healthier, kinder, fairer place. Through our programmes, we hope to create a generation of educated and healthy young leaders, committed to their respective countries and to help build a brighter future both for themselves, their communities and for the next generations.
The FFF is currently working with the Lao Ministry of Education & Sports to develop a pilot of the New Generation Schools programme: NGSL. This pilot aims to replicate the substantial achievements of NGS in Cambodia, transforming educational outcomes through improved teaching, school governance and key subjects for the 21st century. NGSL aspires to drive key changes in governance, recruitment, management and teacher training, optimization of existing resources and improvement of schools facilities. One of its goal is to enable children from poor backgrounds, girls and the disable to access a quality education, free of corruption or abuse through a fair admission process. The FFF is both the funder and implementer of the New Generation programme in Laos. In October 2018, the FFF, and Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York visited Vientiane Capital to kick off the start of the programme. They visited several potential school sites, and met with the Minister of Education.
