Natalie’s story

After watching a video of our head teacher and her team visiting a school in Sierra Leone, I was reminded of how fortunate we are and how much we take for granted here in the UK. I want to raise as much money as possible for Educaid and also to ‘repay my debt of gratitude’. 

Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” and I believe that every single human being should have access to education. 

As I take on this challenge, I remember part of a message from my mentor, Daisaku Ikeda, President of Soka Gakkai International, (a lay Buddhist organisation) to all of us and particularly the youth members;

This is your age.

The future rests in your hands.

I hope you will make the twenty-first century truly wonderful. Please make it a century in which the life of each individual is cherished and respected to the utmost.

A century without discrimination, without bullying, war or murder.

A century in which no child cries with hunger, in which no mothers or children take their own lives in despair.

A century without environmental destruction.

A century free of academic elitism, greed and materialism.

A century in which human rights are upheld as the most precious treasure.

Thanks for reading this far! Please help me to support this incredible charity. 


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.


EducAid Sierra Leone

EducAid provides free, high quality education to over 1,200 of Sierra Leone’s most vulnerable and underprivileged within its 7 free schools. We are on course to impact 250,000 additional students through our teacher-training programme, the QEP, and; with our post-secondary programmes, we are putting our past students and future staff on the right path to creating a genuine change in Sierra Leone.

We are a values-led organisation that strives to empower our students and staff, and to create demonstrable long-term change in Sierra Leone. Our vision is to create a democratic, dignified and prosperous Sierra Leone, where poverty is eliminated by educated citizens who are able to develop their personal, social and economic wellbeing.


EducAid was incorporated in 1995 as a Charitable Trust (reg: 1048012) and transferred to a Charitable Incorporated Entity (CIO) in 2016 (reg: 1163161), both registered under the name of EducAid Sierra Leone.

EducAid’s Head Office in Sierra Leone is based in our Freetown site, Lumley. EducAid also has an office based in Exmouth Market, London.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
