Contain-A-School Programme

Our Contain-A-School Programme recycles unwanted school and office equipment from the UK to schools in Africa where it is desperately needed. Working with trusted charity partners overseas, the 'school in a container' literally transforms education opportunities for hundreds of young people.

Once unloaded we work with the school, the local community and our overseas charity partner to transform the container into a fantastic additional learning space for the school, such as a library, a computer room or early years learning centre.

Our Contain-A-School programme also gives young people from the UK life enhancing opportunities to spend time working in our partner schools. From refurbishing classrooms and building play areas, to teaching children or running football competitions, the experience truly changes lives on both sides of the world.
