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.

We've worked in 47 countries

Currently running 15 projects

Why education?

Education is the key to tackling poverty, improving health and building brighter futures.

How can you get involved with our work?

There are lots of ways to get involved. We value all the support we receive – in whatever form.

“The project made a significant difference to my life. It provided me with respect. I can now read. And my involvement with soap production lifted me from extreme poverty.”
