Through this Program our ambition is to harness the potential of disadvantaged young people around the world by enabling equitable access to quality education so they can help build more inclusive, thriving societies.

The BHP Billiton Foundation seeks to enable equality of opportunity and improve outcomes for young people. This means more children can participate in education in the first place; are enabled to stay and thrive in school longer to gain a higher level of qualifications and skills; and can succeed and prosper throughout their lives.
