The Lemann Center was born from the belief that all people are capable of learning regardless of their contexts and personal characteristics. It is an independent, non-partisan and global organization, conceived by the Lemann Foundation and inspired by the municipality of Sobral, Ceará in Brazil. Our mission is to promote learning with equity in basic education, through the training of educational leaders and the promotion of applied research.

“The Lemann Center intends to unite cutting-edge training and research to eradicate school failure and ensure excellence and equal educational opportunities that truly transform the lives of students, especially those who are led to doubt their ability and have their learning rights constantly violated because of race, gender, socioeconomic status, geography and disability".
