Investing in opportunities for young people
We are looking for enthusiastic, resilient young people to spend ten weeks working in partnership with rural East African secondary schools next summer, designing and delivering tailored investment programmes.
Education Transforms Lives
We work with rural communities in East Africa to improve the quality of secondary education. Our investments empower schools to provide a quality education for their young people. We enable talented university students in the UK to experience grassroots international development and provide them with the awareness, knowledge and skills to become leaders of the future.
Working in Partnership
Investing time and money
Each year we make investments of time and money in our partner schools, improving facilities and sharing ideas, knowledge and skills. Sending volunteers as well as funds enables us to develop a holistic and bespoke programme of investment, tailored to the schools unique context, ambitions and needs. Projects might include equipping schools with key resources such as text books, science equipment and infrastructure, or less tangible initiatives like raising awareness of health issues and developing school strategy.
