The aim of Global Association of Montessori Education and Sport is to connect people through sport and education. It is about building a peaceful and better world by practicing sports and making new friendships. Pupils, teachers and school leaders alike, will learn more about different countries, and their cultures, by working together and sharing ideas and practices.

G.A.M.E.S. will organise an annual Global Montessori Games to connect Montessori schools around the world and work with them to organise the GMG internationally. 

We would manage each event and provide support to any chosen host school, helping to acquire funding, sponsorship and advertisement, while ensuring constant growth of the GMG, through increased participation. 

As a non-profit organisation, our goal is purely that of connecting people through shared learning and experiences, and supplying a multicultural platform for students and teachers to engage in.

We hope for continued growth, for both the event and association, so that we may build lasting relationships with other schools and organisations, who share our vision of shared learning.

In the future, other collaborative projects such as exchanges, internationalization and other forms of knowledge sharing can be set up from the foundation. Stimulating the socio-emotional, sporting and cultural development of pupils. The world within the school and those outside of it belong together. A lot is learned outside the walls of the school. We try to bring that in and integrate it into our approach.
