The Other Hundred is a worldwide initiative by Global Institute For Tomorrow (GIFT) to present a counterpoint to global media consensus about some of today’s most important issues. They want you to send them photographs of the world’s Other Hundred Educators – people with their own special ways of sharing knowledge who you have never heard of.
The Other Hundred is looking for the unconventional educators who are out there in all walks of life. Some work in classrooms, both regular and alternative. Some have no formal qualifications but, use teaching to change lives. Some have passed on knowledge from generation to generation. Some have taught through example not words.
