Our approach is to support the education for young people in underserved communities, focusing initially on lower income countries in Africa. We are using powerful personal stories from iconic and inspirational people, embedded into educational programmes to help inspire; we give educators access to a powerful digital platform of lessons and resources to help equip; and we work in-depth with local partners to provide off-line as well as online support to enable more young people to succeed.
We are working with an experienced local charity on an innovative Life Skills Education Programme for 14-20 year olds in Kenya. The programme draws on filmed insights from inspiring and iconic people and references an extensive body of research. It combines a series of over 30 digital lessons with interactive activities and outdoor education camps, which nurture young people’s potential.
The programme has been motivating, building confidence, developing capabilities and improving wellbeing.

Using powerful digital content and technology from BecomingX, alongside the expertise of local partners, we are working to develop relevant, inspiring educational resources focused on building 'life-success' to share in developing countries, across communities in need.
Our digital lessons and training are helping to build the skills and capabilties of both teachers and students, using inspiring stories and films to bring ideas and concepts to life, alongside evidence-backed tools and activties to put learning into practise.
We are working initially with partners in Africa and are seeing that the lessons and resources can build confidence and aspirations, helping young people living in difficult conditions, to better tackle the challenges they face.

Our educational programmes can help inspire, motivate and give young people hope. We need your support as a donor, fundraiser or volunteer to give more young people across Africa the opportunity to build and achieve their dreams.
Giving a regular or one-off donation can directly help us to expand our reach to further inspire and educate.
Taking on an ambitious fundraising event or challenge can help support others in achieving their dreams
