We believe in making change together

We work alongside change-makers to end poverty and injustice across the world. In 2017-2018 we saw:


people reached, from out-of-school girls to athletes with disabilities


projects delivered alongside 20 local organisations


hours of awareness-raising, so that communities can advocate for change

Keeping girls in education

Everyone has the right to an education. We're making that right a reality for girls in northern Ghana.

Target amount: £1,000.00

Amount raised: £200.00


Human rights

Human rights are at the heart of what we do - and why we do it. Our approach puts local people at the centre of their own change, equipping them to access and achieve their rights.



Volunteer in Africa

International Service offers two opportunities for gaining experience and skills on an international placement. Our placements enable people age 18 and over to gain practical, real-world skills and professional experience as part of their career and personal development .
