Why Freedom to Learn was Started
“Education makes a real difference!”
“I didn’t realise how true this was until I went to India. It really opened my eyes to how much we take for granted in the UK, including our education; and the impact a good education can have on a family in the long term.
My husband and I were travelling in India in 1998 when we came across an empty school which was unable to operate due to having no money. We really wanted to do something to help, so when we returned to the UK, we decided to start raising money for the school and sponsoring children to go to school.
