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.

What's going on at Feed the Minds?
Katie Luxton, our Programme & Funding Officer, tells us about her recent visit to Edinburgh, where she attended Heart & Soul festival with our Community Events and Fundraising Officer, Sam Cook.
Our Director, Josephine Carlsson, writes: “Recently, I marched through a town supporting women’s rights. It was not one of the marches you would have seen in the news the last few months, and tiny compared to the ones that took place in London or NYC.
“Yesterday, I visited Otley in West Yorkshire to speak at the St. George’s Day Parade Service. Over 400 Scouts, leaders and parents gathered at the packed out church to celebrate St. George’s Day. “
Easter is one of the most special times of the year and we hope you are all able to celebrate with friends, family and loved ones.
