Educational resources

Get changed: Change lives

Our educational resources are packed full of activities that will help your class explore themes around reading, literacy and books both in sub-Saharan Africa and the UK. We encourage you to use them to add learning value to your fundraising activities.

They involve individual thinking, discussion, debate, research, presentation and team work as well as creative writing, critical writing, reading and art and design. The activities are designed to be adapted for both younger and older age groups.
