About Us

We connect, train, and equip educational ‘catalysts’ to drive community-led change.

We have supported 300 educational catalysts in 42 communities in creating community-led education ‘spots’, many powered by solar, whilst nurturing deeper reflection on sustainable development. Our Ghanaian team lead programmes in leadership, practical STEM and literacy development, impacting an estimated 15,000 learners annually.

Since 2016, we have also sponsored roughly 200 science kits (working in partnership with Dext Technology) and delivered an estimated 80,000 books (many brand new, thanks to Book Aid International, and including £7000 of new African fiction and local text books). We have run an annual conference since 2018, and led our first Ghana Youth Summit in 2019.

We work with 40 UK and Ghanaian schools in active global citizenship projects, with an estimated 15,000 students in over 150 schools benefiting from our education programmes and resources.

You can download all the most recent financial statements and annual reports on the charity commission website.
