SUAS is an Irish NGO that supports quality education in disadvantaged communities in Ireland and in Developing Countries. We work with partners to develop, deliver, monitor and evaluate quality education programmes. Our partnership model engages young Irish people as Volunteers at home (for example as literacy support providers) and abroad (as teaching assistants) and, in the process, enables the volunteers to gain a significantly greater perspective and understanding of global issues and of their own role in improving the lives of others at a local and global level. Linking in with our volunteering work, each year we deliver a multi-element non-formal education programme for Third level students, which seeks to increase students’ awareness, critical understanding and constructive engagement with global issues and build a cohort of socially committed young leaders. Suas is driven by a vision of a world where all children and young people are given the opportunity to realize their full potential in life, and to create positive change in society.
