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.
