About Us


EduSpots is a global charity delivering community-led change through education. We work collaboratively across Ghana, the UK and wider Africa to enable individuals and communities to create the future they want to see through education.

Our flagship Community Leadership in Education programme aims to equip current volunteers with the understanding, skills and mindset to lead change in their communities through education.

We won the national Tes International Award sponsored by the British Council in 2018 for our innovative and impactful approach to global learning and citizenship education.
