Our Mission

Origins of the Project

The Mulkern Foundation was founded in response to the decision of the Afghan Taliban to outlaw education for girls. Our mission, therefore, is to help women in the developing world overcome barriers such as oppression, displacement and financial instability to become qualified teachers. The Certificate in Language Pedagogy was developed to provide a reputable standard of training to aspiring educators from all backgrounds, without the costs associated with similar qualifications. In addition to being provided at-cost due to our strict non-profit ethos, the course is also delivered in a flexible format that takes account of the challenges faced by many of its students, such as poor internet access, unpredictable schedules and family commitments.
