viaEd provides consultancy, insights and project support to grant giving foundations,
who aim to create a better world through education and early childhood development.
Education and child development are exceptional ways of enhancing lives and building society. Our mission at viaEd is to enable grant giving foundations to enhance their impact in the rapidly developing world of education, learning and early childhood development.
Every organisation needs to answer the big questions about its purpose,
goals and values, to demonstrate that it's achieving them effectively, and
to build understanding among its key stakeholders.
viaEd will help with the toughtest of strategic dilemmas, shape a new strategic direction, brings external insight, or build a results framework to tell the strategic story and results of your strategy.

viaEd will design portfolios, establish new programmes, align programmes with a strategy, extract learning from projects, or bring additional resource and insight to a complex project at any stage of its life.
The best strategies and projects are underpinned by solid research
and clarity over policy and advocacy objectives. They contribute to
what's known, and change how people think about issues.
viaEd will develop a research informed policy position for advocacy activities, articulate new messages, or translate the academic literature to accessible concepts and language.
Technology in education is omni-present ... yet, the technology
revolution in education is still in its early days (especially
in developing countries) and aligns poorly with how we know people learn best.
viaEd will help you make the best use of technology in your work, challenge outdated approaches to pedagogy, or drive a project which depends on online learning.
As important as 'what' we do, is 'how' we do it. We'll put our insight and experience into your project. We'll understand you and your stakeholders. We'll collaborate with your team and partners to build momentum, energy and in-house experience. We'll measure results. We'll stay focussed but flexible.
viaEd was founded in 2016 to help meet the growing need for specialist consultancy for foundations working in education.
We're focused, nimble and based in Switzerland with an international outlook in all our projects.
We're a well networked team, so we routinely pull in specialist skills when needed.
viaEd works with foundations who address the challenges of quality learning and development at scale, especially the most disadvantaged.
We believe in the ability of quality education to change lives and society.
viaEd works and thinks internationally and holistically. We use data to drive decisions but know that it takes more than numbers alone to understand complex organisations and social challenges.
