About EdHeroes
Over the past few years, the COVID-19 pandemic greatly hindered access to quality education. To counter this issue long-distance teaching methods are actively being used. The number of children receiving their education at home is fast increasing, which is why creating a comfortable learning environment within a child's family is becoming more important.

The EdHeroes Movement emerged to support families and increase access to quality education for everyone.

Who Is an EdHero?

Someone who is prepared to invest their time, ideas, and other resources to change education for the better
Someone who has or is willing to show initiative through their input into education
Someone who believes education starts with family
Someone making positive impact on a community through education
EdHeroes Manifesto
We at EdHeroes believe education is the most powerful force for human betterment. We are on a mission to improve the access to and the quality of education for people of all ages.

While formal classroom education is critically important, we believe that a broader focus that recognizes and supports the roles of family, friends, and communities is vital to creating well-educated and thriving people.

To achieve this goal, we are creating a new ‘operating system’ for advancing education based on transparency and decentralization to push for social change. Our worldwide network counts educators, parents, students, policymakers, advocates, and many other people passionate about education as participants. We are bringing them together – one conference, workshop, or event at a time – to share best practices, build novel approaches and catalyze partnerships to better education – for people, for families, and for entire communities.
