The FedEx story began with a big idea and a belief that access to new markets, knowledge and opportunities makes people’s lives better. Over the past nearly 40 years, our business has changed what’s possible for individuals and businesses – large and small – all over theglobe. Every day, we deliver 8.5 million shipments to more than 220 countries and territories, connecting innovative ideas and new products with the global marketplace. We believe that these connections foster prosperity, and to maintain progress toward a better world, we must not only create Access for today’s thinkers, leaders and entrepreneurs, but for the next generation as well.
Our goal is to create a future where the world’s markets are driven by globally and socially minded individuals from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our investments in education target innovative solutions to closing the achievement gap and prioritize programs that create and teach Access. Together with our dedicated team members and some of the top nonprofit organizations in the world, FedEx is helping students on six continents realize their potential and change what’s possible in their lives. We are proud to celebrate the achievements of our programs and the young people we support in this second report on our Global Citizenship Programs in Education.
