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.
“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.”

What's going on at Feed the Minds?
Adama, an inspiring 21-year-old mother, was supported by our project empowering rural women farmers in Northern Sierra Leone. Read her story here.
Together, we can help to beat the stigma surrounding menstruation, campaign for better sanitary product provision for girls and women all over the world, and empower girls and women through training and education. Let’s end the taboo. Period.
In recent months, the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo has deepened. Over half the people in the area where we work had to flee the violence. Now, they are retuning and trying to resume their lives.
Read these inspirational messages from the women we work with in Sierra Leone, who are working to empower women living in rural and extremely poor communities through our project.
