Here are some of the partners we have worked with so far

We recognize the critical work done by Leonard Education in underserved areas of global education and are excited to partner with them.

Since the inception of LE.O Mr. Hakam Barakat owner of The Toledo Hotel, has been right by our side. Graciously welcoming our female and male students as they transited from Gaza or The West Bank on their way to apply for visas or simply travel to the US.
Dr. Graham Leonard has also made the hotel his home for the past 12 years as he established and worked on his Ma Hakkaat at-Tafkir Critical Thinking program for the Jordanian Public School system and UNRWA schools. He has hosted regular meetings in the conference rooms for his teacher trainers, and received guests for meals.
