At The Camden Education Trust we believe that through education we make the world a better place to live in.
Founded in 2018 The Camden Trust was named in memory of the Irish workers who emigrated to Camden in London in the 1950’s. Due to the minimal basic education many of these people had received in Ireland they never fulfilled their true potential. Unfortunately today many young people need educational support to ensure they can live full and rewarding lives.
The word ‘Trust’ was chosen as philanthropy requires significant trust between the donors and the Charity. Camden Education Trust (CET) is a not for profit company with Charitable Status, based in Ireland. CET is focused on managing education projects and developing curriculum and content for these projects and teacher education globally. We work closely with a wide range of corporate partners, governments and family foundations to create educational initiatives which benefit young people, particularly those who are underserved.
