Building Futures is Study Group’s corporate fundraising initiative. Through Building Futures, we have been supporting education projects in developing countries since 2004.
Building Futures is committed to long-term, sustainable education projects in developing regions. Supporting some of the world’s poorest children, our projects construct schools and improve access to quality education in these communities.
Our current project aims to improve the quality of and access to education for girls in rural Ghana. A major focus of the project is tackling the negative attitude towards girls’ education – as well as girls who are at risk of dropping out of school.
Annual flooding in Bangladesh causes schools to close for months at a time, interrupting the education of thousands of children. This project improved infrastructure, safety and access to learning at eight schools.
Building Futures' tenth project focused on rebuilding schools and restoring education for girls and boys in Nepal, following the major earthquakes of 2015. Study Group raised the £220,000 needed to construct and fit out the new school in Sindhupalchowk District, Nepal.
Civil war damaged Sri Lanka’s infrastructure and the Anuradhapura district desperately needed a new primary school to improve the education opportunities for 400 children.
Our project involved the construction of a new primary school in Anuradhapura in northern Sri Lanka. This directly helped over 400 children access a quality education.
I feel very happy to study in the new school. The classrooms are bright and have fresh air. Now, I don't have to worry about being cold in winter.
