Did you know there are more children under the age of 16 in Uganda than anywhere else in the world. Education is vitally important, it the best way forward in Africa, to improve lives at a young age, protect girls and encourage understanding and knowledge to help regeneration and progress in the country. Often classes have over 300 children in them. So to help the teachers in Africa cope better and be better teachers, Red Earth goes in and trains them. Professional educators themselves, Red Earth makes a difference at grass roots level. Will you help us change this?

THE COLOURS OF AFRICA – THROUGH HER CHILDREN’S EYES

If you find time while the exhibition is on, please go and support, write a comment in the book for the children to read, or if you can’t go, leave a message on their website and if you can spare a few pounds make a little donation (maybe skip that Starbucks coffee this morning and squeeze the £3 into the Red Earth pot?)

Thanks so much for your support, means a lot to hundreds of children.

The story we often receive of Africa is one of children hungry and malnourished, a place in need. This is not the only story to be told. We welcome you to a different story, one of dreams and ambition, creativity and wonder.

Help us to empower teachers and give children in Uganda the best start in life 🙂
