The core of what we do
We focus on three main areas
All children deserve an education. Our work gives children in the toughest parts of sub Saharan Africa the support they need to be able to learn and develop.
Too many classrooms in sub- Saharan Africa are not fit for purpose. By supporting teacher training and by ensuring schools are fit for purpose we’re able to allow teachers to do exactly what they do best – teach.
Life outside the classroom has a huge impact on a child’s chance of success. To facilitate that success, we continuously work with both families and communities so they can in turn support a child’s education
How we work
Lessons for Life are a grant making organisation as opposed to an implementing organisation, which means we find, fund and partner with outstanding local organisations. These partners then carry out vital work on the ground in Africa, with our support.
Our staff conduct regular field visits, to monitor partners and build capacity within the local organisations that we are proud to support and help grow. Learn more about each of the countries we work in across sub-Saharan Africa, and take a look at our partners here
