The Varsavsky Foundation was established by Martin Varsavsky in May 2000. It is a private, independent grantmaking organization dedicated to broadening access to, and improving the quality of, education world-wide.
Through its grantmaking activities, the Foundation seeks to ensure that the fundamental tools of learning, from basic bricks & mortar classrooms to on-line cyber-libraries, are available to children of all ages and in all parts of the world. The Foundation further aims to foster the realization of the full pedagogical potential of technology and the internet.
