About Edukans


Edukans is an international NGO with headquarters in the Netherlands and country offices in Malawi, Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. We provide marginalised children and youngsters around the world with basic education and vocational training. We focus on four key themes: quality basic education, vocational education, education in emergencies and equal opportunities for boys and girls.

Edukans Group

The Edukans Group consists of Edukans International and five strong independent strategic partners. Each partner within the Edukans Group is committed to the shared mission:

Edukans strives for a high level of integrity. This is reflected in a safe working environment for all our employees and volunteers and in dealing with integrity in relation to the people we work with.

To achieve this, we have drawn up a Code of Conduct that is signed by everyone who represents and works on behalf of Edukans. This code of conduct focuses on preventing:

  • Abuse of power: corruption, conflicts of interest and partiality, disclosure of confidential information, culpable negligence;
  • Financial offenses: fraud, theft, misappropriation of property or services, willful waste;
  • Interpersonal violations: discrimination, humiliation, violence, bullying, (sexual) harassment, (sexual) violence.

In addition, integrity is a topic of discussion within the organization, so that awareness of this subject is increased. In this way we create an organizational culture in which people dare to address each other and in which reporting abuses is encouraged.
