About GAEE

We are a 501(c)(3) NGO founded and led by students to promote economics education, personal finance, and entrepreneurship incubation for our peers in marginalized communities and underserved school systems across ten countries. With a love for economics, we are bonded by a desire to democratize access to this exciting subject—making it available for everyone, not just for those pursuing economic priesthood.

“Two-thirds of the world’s population doesn’t have access to economics education. That’s why we founded GAEE. Knowing what opportunity cost is about and how to read a balance sheet—we want every student finishing high school or college to be capable of that.

Le Dong Hai Nguyen, GAEE’s Founder & Executive Director

Behind the Wheel

GAEE is entirely led by young people—high school, undergraduate, graduate students, and aspiring economists. Our network of 1500+ changemakers across ten countries are working tirelessly to make economics education accessible to everyone.

Much of our strength as a student-led movement is derived from our passionate network of 1500+ members. Our chapter leaders are the backbone of this tight-knit network that spans across Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania.

Bridging the gap between theory and real-world is indeed a skill that would be highly sought after in the post-pandemic world—and GAEE managed to do so with a very interactive and personalized approach. In addition to over thirty colleges from across the country, the National Council of Educational Research and Training has expressed interest in joining GAEE.
