Discovery Channel Global Education Partnership (DCGEP) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that for the past 11 years has been working in under-resourced schools around the world, using the power of television to increase student learning, increase teacher effectiveness, and increase the community's access to information and involvement in their children's schools. The initiative is locally-managed, and involves a collaborative process of educational videoprogram development that combines contributions of expertise and high quality documentary footage from Discovery with the needs of educators in each country where we work. In addition, we provide three years of teacher training and capacity building to ensure their ability to maximize the value of educational television as a tool for teaching and learning.
