By helping them through their education, you are ‘paying it forward’ so they can not only transform their own future but also build a better life for their family and their community.
Child Scholarship Programme
Our scholarships change lives
Our scholarship programme gives children a wonderful opportunity to continue their education and create a better future for themselves and their family.
We work with 3 schools across Southern Africa and for as little as £12.50 a month you could provide one child with a much needed bursary that covers:
secondary school education
full board & lodgings
all their books.
“Every year there are hundreds of children leaving primary school in Kenya with no hope of attending secondary school. They are resigned to the idea of being “too poor to afford education”.
BUILDING Libraries and Learning Centres
And so the moment we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold into a library, we've changed their lives forever, and for the better. This is an enormous force for good.”
― Barack Obama
We work with Ugandan communities empowering them to operate Libraries and Learning Centres and engage volunteers, librarians and community children in a host of developmental activities.
Our book donation scheme allows Ugandan community libraries and schools to apply for a small number of books. We collect and ships donated educational resources from individuals and organisations in the UK, reducing waste and increasing ‘readcycling’.
