Feed the Minds has over 50 years of experience delivering practical education projects in low-income countries.
We are a global network of individuals and local partner organisations who share the same values and aspire to create positive change.
We believe each person deserves the opportunity to lead a healthy and fulfilled life – spiritually, emotionally, and materially – away from poverty and discrimination in all its forms. Together, our projects reach people, especially women, who often missed out on school or training opportunities due to extreme poverty, conflict, or discrimination.
The right to relevant education, and to literacy, is a cornerstone for what we do. By literacy we mean more than just learning to read and write words or carry out calculations. We see literacy linked to key challenges in people’s lives; therefore, learners are gaining skills with a relevant purpose.
Our organisation is based on Christian values, but we work with people of all faiths and those with no faith. We are deeply committed to inclusiveness.
Our projects reach people, especially women, who often missed out on school or training opportunities due to extreme poverty, conflict and/or discrimination.
We believe in a world in which all people everywhere have the opportunity to live life in all its fullness.
Whether you have literacy skills or not has nothing to do with your level of intelligence or hard work. It has to do with the opportunities you have had access to. Often, people with no or low literacy skills – being able to read, write and count – live in communities with less resources and opportunities for education, training and access to school.
That is why all our projects include practical literacy training to help people build essential, life-long skills.
