Could your pupils support the world’s biggest minority?

The power of school fundraising

80% of disabled people worldwide live in developing countries. Faced with exclusion in many countries, the world’s one billion people with disabilities have been described as the ‘world’s biggest minority’. School fundraising enables our teams to provide life-changing support for some of the most vulnerable people on earth.

From fundraising sports days and summer fetes to tutor group challenges; we have been humbled by support from pupils and teachers in 2016. We would be honoured to have your school’s support next year.

Please order your fundraising pack

As well as a fundraising pack, we can provide a speaker to talk about our work with communities affected by conflict.

Whether it’s giving an amputee the chance to walk again or helping to make a community safe from the threat of landmines, the money you raise could really change lives.

Please order our fundraising pack or contact for more information.

Thank you for your support,


P.S. Our YouTube Playlist for schools contains 13 short videos about our work with communities affected by war.
