The Centre for Global Education (CGE) was established in 1986 by eight development agencies to provide education services that will enhance awareness of international development issues. Its central remit is to challenge dominant stereotypes and commonly held perceptions of developing countries which are prevalent in our society.

The Centre believes that education can empower individuals and communities to play an active role in addressing the causes of poverty and injustice around the world. The Centre for Global Education believes in and works toward a just and equitable world. They seek to promote an understanding of the interdependency of people across the world. They aim to use education as a means of challenging the causes of poverty and inequality in both local and global contexts by working with all sectors of education.
