The All-Island Education Network is a project funded by the All Island Communities Fund. 

Mother Tongues is a social enterprise working to promote multilingualism and intercultural dialogue in Ireland.
We do this through three interconnected goals:

    1. Educating and empowering parents and educators
    2. Creating networks and support groups for multilingual families
    3. Raising awareness of the benefits of multilingualism and intercultural dialogue for individuals and society.

To reach our goals we work with public and private partners such as government departments, charities, local authorities, businesses, health services, universities and research centres, community groups, arts and culture organisations.
