Education should inspire, motivate, and set young people up to succeed.
Our aim is to inspire, equip and enable millions of young people in underserved communities, helping them in building the skills and knowledge they need to better realise their potential.
We are building unique digital resources to empower both educators and young people across Africa and are delivering life skills programmes, working with local partners, combining these resources with outdoor education to build the confidence and capabillties young people need for success in today’s world.
Meaningful education can truly transform lives and societies yet in many countries’ education quality is poor and many young people are not being adequately prepared for the future.
Schools in many developing countries lack resources and are teaching outdated curriculums. This means that schooling often doesn’t equal learning and there is a growing skills-gap.
The pandemic and lockdowns have worsened drop-out rates and the need for relevant, engaging education is even greater.
We are an independent charity, registered separately in the UK and the US, focused on empowering young people through inspiring, forward-thinking education in developing countries.
We were founded by BecomingX, a certified B-corporation, and we have a shared vision of a world where everyone can realise their potential, whatever there starting point in life. They provide support including innovative digital content, operational expertise and a minimium of 10% of their educational revenue, ensuring more of your donations and support can directly reach and benefit young people.
We can all play an important role in educating and inspiring others. We need your support to build the skills, confidence, and aspirations of young people across Africa.
Through a donation, taking on your own inspirational challenge or volunteering you can directly help us in increasing the number of students, schools, and communities in Africa that we can reach with our lessons and programmes of support.
We are also keen to link schools involved with BecomingX Foundation in Africa to schools in the UK to share experiences and learning.
Could you take on a new challenge to help others realise their ambitions?
Take on one of our ambitious fundraising challenges, such as climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, cycling 100 miles, running a marathon - or choose your own - to experience something new, inspire others, and provide invaluable support for our programmes.
We'd love to keep in touch to share news on our programmes, our future plans and new fundraising challenges we are organising.
