'Change the university and you change the world.' Charles Habib Malik
Former President of the UN General Assembly
Pascal Lectures, 1981
Today's students are tomorrow's world leaders. Yet universities, although they are centres of thought, leadership and innovation, on the whole fail to engage with foundational Christian truths. As a result, students are being sent into the world unprepared to be the leaders of integrity that the world so desperately needs.
IFES' primary calling is to enter the university, to reach students at this crucial time when they are open to new ideas and are being formed by prevailing philosophies and theories. In some countries, IFES also works with high school students and in tertiary institutions such as technical schools.
Currently, there is an IFES presence in 154 countries around the world.
