How can we inspire kids to go further?


Tackling inequality through education

It seems hard to believe, but poverty isn’t just a problem in faraway lands, it’s right here on our doorstep. One in three children in Coventry are estimated to be living in poverty; many have never have travelled further than one mile from their home, and some of the areas we work in are defined by the Government as in the 10% most deprived in England.

This is the context for much of our local outreach work, where we work to inspire and raise aspirations. Thanks to your donations, we also reach out across the globe to schools in Africa and India to help offer improved Maths and English skills.

Please can you help us give children a stronger chance in life, no matter what their financial background?

I think it also opens up their world to exciting possibilities, even if it's just igniting that dream.”

One teacher said that after Take Part in Art, a child pulled on her sleeve and said, "Did you know there's a school for big children? And you just do Maths there all day!" They hadn't heard of a university before.
