Education Programme


Equal access to quality education is central to fighting extreme global poverty and promoting peace. Education is the surest route out of poverty.

We support projects that utilise innovative ideas to enhance capacity and access. We will establish new partnerships between youth living in the UK and developing world.




Livingstone Volunteers

In partnership with Livingstone 200, the McConnell International Foundation has established the Livingstone Volunteers scheme to help support the fundraising efforts of those young Scots who have the chance to volunteer in Africa, but are struggling to meet the costs. Learn more here






Tools For Life

In partnership with Positive Women, the McConnell International Foundation has supported a pilot study, and a pilot project to establish Tools for Life. T4L is an innovative scheme that has begun in Swaziland, but we hope will be transferable to other countries. Learn more here
