Coulters Property Take on Charity Challenges for Link
This year, Link has partnered with Coulters Property in Edinburgh to raise funds for our work improving education in sub-Saharan Africa. Coulters are taking on two big events in September to rasie sponsorship money for Link.
Mark Coulter, Chief Executive at Coulters, said: “We’re constantly inspired by the work Link does to improve education for some of the poorest and most vulnerable children in sub-Saharan Africa.
We're thrilled to share the final endline results from our Girls' Education Challenge project, Improved Girls’ Learning in Rural Wolaita, funded by UK Aid. Over the past four years this holistic project has worked at community-level across four of the most remote and disadvantaged districts of Wolaita Zone in southern Ethiopia to improve 123 primary schools and support 62,777 girls to learn and stay in school. The project has sustained transformational progress across key intervention areas, boosting girls' literacy by 197%, numeracy by 301% and retention in school by 30%.
