The human values of Action Education


We believe that education contributes to the autonomy and development of individual capacities and enables everyone to live in dignity. We value and respect each person for what they represent.


For Action Education, equal rights for all human beings are fundamental. By removing barriers to inclusion in education, we help everyone to exercise their rights.
Our working environment is inclusive, without any discrimination.

  • Social and cultural diversity: our overall aim is to promote Diversity. Thus, for Action Education, it is essential to ensure a truly international and diverse organisation in terms of social, cultural and professional backgrounds. We ensure that representatives from all our areas of operation around the world, in Africa, South Asia, South East Asia, Europe and Latin America-Caribbean, are represented in all our bodies and participate in the decisions of the organisation.
  • Disability awareness in France, Action Education organised in November 2021 its first DuoDay.  We will thus welcome people with disabilities, in pairs with volunteer professionals. The programme for this day includes discovering the professions, active participation and immersion in companies. This day represents an opportunity to meet people and change the way they look at things and, together, to overcome prejudices.


    Collective and individual integrity is paramount to us and guides all our decisions, initiatives and actions. In everything we do, we strive to act with honesty, fairness and ethics and to work according to our values.


    Because Education and Innovation are deeply intertwined, we strive to ensure that our teams benefit from constant and shared learning.

    For example, we organise Innovation Days. These monthly webinars are dedicated to sharing experiences between operational teams, learning from each other and promoting innovation.

    Every first Thursday of the month, colleagues from various countries are invited to present an innovation they have implemented or an idea for an innovation to be developed.
