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 16 projects

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.”

International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Helping people to help themselves is the basis for empowering persons with disabilities. None are more aware of their disadvantages than persons with disabilities themselves. Disability is more than a physical or mental limitation on the part of the individual, but links to the resources available to them, to an ability to make a contribution and, ultimately, to the self-confidence of the individual man, woman or child with disability.
