Over the last 3 years, we have supported some incredible projects in Nepal, Laos, Tanzania, and India. Our projects in 2021 include Sierra Leonne and Kenya.
Here are some of the recent projects:
Global Issue Workshops
Running workshops on the importance of long term education, a clean and sustainable environment and gender equality with children to ensure they are able to understand these global issues at an early stage in their lives.
School Renovation Project Nepal
In June 2019, we helped renovate local schools in Nepal as well as creating a Sports Arena in another! Check out some of the transformation pictures below:
Giving illiterate and semi-illiterate individuals the knowledge and tools to improve their local community. To do this, they are provided with focused lessons in solar infrastructure, technology, finance, legal rights, micro-enterprise (small business skills) and environmental education.
Every individual trained, becomes a teacher in their local village and shares the knowledge they have learnt.
Day and night schools
Aimed at children from local villages aged between 6 and 14, these schools help to build the skills and knowledge required for a brighter future.

Literacy-focused programmes using books written in local languages by local authors
In collaboration with Room to Read, we are helping children to read using books written in local languages and created by local authors and illustrators. Each book is custom made to the specific region or village, and also helps to share important lessons about social-economic thinking such as gender equality and the environment.
Life skills and vocational training centres
Training individuals with life skills and training courses such as hairdressing, crafts, computer use and dressmaking which will allow them to obtain paid employment.
