Education makes aworld of difference
Feed the Minds helps marginalised people transform their lives through education. We do this through community-led projects in the Global South.
From local to global
Our projects are local but our impact is global. We believe helping one person directly, helps hundreds indirectly in the community. Enabling our local partners to spread their reach means that each year our work benefits around 100,000 people.
Education is the key to tackling poverty, improving health and building brighter futures.
There are lots of ways to get involved. We value all the support we receive – in whatever form.

I was 6 years old when ‘Wannabe’ came out. For every kid of my generation, the Spice Girls’ debut single was a complete game-changer. A slice of pure bubble-gum pop perfection that, along with ‘Football’s Coming Home’, was the omnipresent sound of summer 1996.
