To advance education by providing a comprehensive program in mathematics fundamentals essential for success in Science, Technology, Engineering, and other areas of learning which require a solid foundation in Mathematics.
Eagles of Tomorrow Education Society has its origins in an initiative to bridge systemic gaps in mathematics fundamentals among Aboriginal children in inner city schools in Vancouver, Canada.
Rahael Koshy Jalan, a mathematician by profession, was asked to help with issues that hindered math proficiency among Aboriginal students. Rahael’s efforts to provide a means for enabling Aboriginal students to succeed in Mathematics resulted in the creation of the books “The Language of Mathematics”.
Our first success was achieved in June 2009, when two students of Aboriginal ancestry successfully graduated from Britannia Secondary School, Vancouver, Canada with Principles Of Math 12… A FIRST at Britannia, where 30% of students are of Aboriginal ancestry. The program expanded to Templeton Secondary School and Windermere Secondary School in Vancouver.
Eagles of Tomorrow Education Society is a registered Canadian charity.
Our vision is, in part, a reflection of our work so far, and it is also a shared commitment to lead and innovate with the help of our partners and our learners.

The success of Aboriginal students in the math program in Canada triggered its expansion to township children in South Africa in 2009.
Inspired by the successes of the math program in Canada and South Africa, the expansion of the program to India was initiated in 2016.
