Give these Children and hand up - rather than a hand out

About Us

Promoting Global Learning began in Surrey with a small group of individuals who were passionate about seeing change in schools in developing countries. Within a few months we had filled a garage with old textbooks, story books, and stationery kindly donated by a few schools in the UK. Now we are collecting boxes and boxes of books, stationery, laptops and much more in warehouses from schools and individuals across the country.

Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” ― Kofi Annan The idea began when Sue Gerrish, a teacher, had a chance to meet with Henry Yentumi, a Ghanaian, who was privileged to be born into a family that could support him through his education. She saw that he was committed to giving something back to his country. The roots of the charity began. During trips to Africa, Sue visited schools and was astounded at how little they had in comparison to English schools, yet the children were still happy and motivated. She vowed that one day she would be in a position to help them in some way. .
