The Benefits of Learning the English Language for International Relations
Every country, regardless of its size has equal standing in the United Nations (UN). Each Member State is entitled to one vote in the General Assembly. It does not matter how influential or dependent they are and hold one another in high esteem. As an organisation composed of an estimated 193 Member States however, there needs to be an accepted form of communication. It was established that this would be facilitated in six official languages. These are: Chinese, Spanish, English, Arabic, Russian and French.

An elephant for a book
We invite students to draw and/or paint an elephant (or elephants) and send it to The Elephant Minds Foundation. In exchange, EMF will buy a book that will be donated in the student’s name to the school or library they are members of. Find those crayons, pencils, watercolours or any items that will help you express your unique creativity and get started! We look forward to seeing your art work any time soon.
- Encourage students to learn about Elephants; their behaviour, habitats, and what these animals can teach them
- Encourage students to explore ways in which elephants and people can share space where coexistence is a challenge for both
- Encourage students to share their work and educational experiences with others around the world
- Encourage students to help others like them
- Support students so that they may achieve all of the above and leave their own kind and generous legacy by offering An elephant for a book
A project of The Elephant Minds Foundation

The Elephant Minds Foundation continues its work
It seems like almost yesterday, when we started the Elephant Minds Foundation, with the aim of supporting those who have limited or no access to education, but we have actually been running since 2013! Five wonderful years where the support of our students, friends, members, and many supporters has allowed us to get involved with some incredible projects around the world. We have been especially busy over the past two years, with particular focus on our work in Argentina, India and Tanzania.
