Education makes aworld of difference
Feed the Minds helps marginalised people transform their own lives through adult education. We do this through community-led projects in the Global South.
Our global impact
We are a UK-based international development charity that supports some of the world’s most marginalised individuals and communities through adult education projects. Through our practical projects, we enable long-term change by building people’s skills and knowledge. Last year, we ran 17 projects in 12 countries - benefitting more than 500,000 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.
