ABOUT US

Everyone has talent and potential but not everyone has access to opportunities.

We work to address the digital divide by partnering with communities in the UK and East Africa to help give youth access to digital technology, educational opportunities and support. 

We’re reshaping the education landscape, one library at a time.

At its core, LeNoir Foundation helps to create a world where all children learn in safe, healthy, engaging environments. We build and enhance libraries & E-Learning labs so that students, and especially girls, can thrive in happy, interactive spaces where dreams are born and nurtured.

We build libraries, and we work with communities to empower them to operate these facilities. 

 Accelerate the roll-out of digital learning, by providing IT equipment to schools, particularly to those serving the most vulnerable children.

Award scholarships to gifted students to improve their prospects of success.

We all share the common belief that everyone has talent and potential but not everyone has access to opportunities. We are committed to supporting a world with greater educational opportunities for all. 

We fundamentally believe that a day will come in our lifetimes when every single child will have access to a quality education, and we will continue to work tirelessly in breaking down the restraints of today to enable the possibilities of tomorrow.
