AED (Academy for Educational Development)

Founded in 1961, AED is an independent, nonprofit organization committed to solving critical social problems and building the capacity of individuals, communities, and institutions to become more self-sufficient. AED works in all the major areas of human development, with a focus on improving education, health, and economic opportunities for the least advantaged in the United States and developing countries throughout the world.

With tools ranging from research to training to policymaking, AED equips governments, communities and other partners to overcome the barriers and provide an education that helps young girls—and entire nations—reach their potential.
