About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.

The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) was established as a government-funded agency dedicated to providing grant-aid programmes on the part of the Korean Government in 1991.

The organisation serves both domestically and internationally as a development coordination platform, working towards the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As its mission, KOICA seeks to contribute to addressing global development issues by pursuing global harmony and facilitating the sustainable socio-economic development of its partner countries, aiming to reduce poverty and improve the quality of life in developing countries. Ultimately, KOICA strives to become a beacon of development cooperation that works to initiate a new era of global happiness and it values knowledge, openness, innovation, collaboration and accountability.

"Humanity will not overcome the immense challenges we face unless we ensure that children get the quality education that equips them to play their part in the modern world." -- HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser
