Our ambition is to reach 1 million children in over 10 countries.
Each year, we conduct a rolling strategic planning process, which sees us come together as a board and executive team, to reset the organisation's direction. Based on the previous year's key learnings we've had, we reset a 5-year vision for 40K PLUS, as well as set 12 month milestones. This allows us to prioritise key projects that take the organisation forward.
To achieve the plan outlined below, we will focus on getting the product right, building a sustainable model, exploring more scalable delivery models and securing adequate funding.
1. Reach 1 million students,
2. Operate successfully in 10-15 countries,
3. Deliver PLUS through multiple channels and devices,
