Link Community Development

Improving the quality of education in Africa

Sponsor a School Overview

Be part of something big!

When you sponsor a school, you don’t just help the children in one school, but in all the schools in the district. That’s hundreds, sometimes thousands, of children every year.

We know from 20 years’ experience that no school is an island. To make lasting improvements in the quality of education in individual schools, change must involve the headteachers, teachers, parents, local community, district education offices and ultimately the national policy makers that surround and support each school.

School Sponsors play an invaluable part in making this a success. Your donations give us the freedom to be creative, come up with innovative solutions and demonstrate them with our school, community and district partners.

When we find something that works, we collaborate with government to scale this up to all the schools in a district, so we impact on the whole district rather than creating islands of excellence. This approach means that we can achieve systemic change with interventions that are proven to make a difference.

Because we share our knowledge with government, this work can and does lead to changes in national policy that can reach every school child in the country. 

As a sponsor you will receive a detailed profile of a real school that Link is working with and updates on Link’s work and the state of education in the district so that you can see the changes that you are helping to bring.
