INTO Giving is about harnessing the talent, resources and commitment of all those working with INTO and the wider community to advance the education of less privileged young people around the world. Through this approach we foster shared values within INTO, and aim to make a real difference to the futures of the young people who we support.
Nicola Burness-Smith, Director, INTO Giving
Help transform lives by supporting educational projects around the world.
Working in impoverished parts of the world, INTO Giving helps provide young people with sustainable routes to better lives by improving their access to education.
INTO Giving, the charitable arm of INTO University Partnerships, is about harnessing the talent, resources and commitment of all those working with INTO and the wider community to advance the education of less privileged young people living in difficult circumstances.
Parents everywhere share a desire to give their children the best possible start in life but, sadly, a basic education is still beyond the reach of many young people around the world. Through our projects we aim to improve levels of educational participation and achievement among those who need it most.
Every day 57 million orphans miss out on school
They will grow up with lower incomes, lower life expectancies and health outcomes. They are often more vulnerable to natural disasters, exploitation and abuse.
This is why INTO Giving continues to support projects like the CCEE, where we can make a difference by creating greater access to education and by working in partnership to improve the quality of that education.
Food - an educational essential
A generous donation by the local Spar shop means that the orphans and vulnerable children at the Chawama Centre for Education and Empowerment are now able to eat lunch.
Each week the shop donates five bags of mealie meal to the school so that the children can have a midday meal, enabling them to stay at school for the full day - if they don't get lunch, they are unable to concentrate in the afternoons.
INTO Giving would really like to thank the shop for their help. For more about our work in Zambia, click here.
An unforgettable experience
On August 11th an INTO Giving team of six flew out to Lusaka, Zambia to help out on the annual orphans summer camp run by I-CCO (In-Community Care for Orphans).
"For all of us the experience was great fun, extremely tiring, very hot but incredibly rewarding and we would all love to return next year." – agreed INTO Giving director, Nicola Burness-Smith, three of her family and the two friends who participated in this self-funded 8 day trip.
