Quality Education

Target Case studies

By 2030, ensure equal access for all women and men to

affordable and quality technical, vocational and tertiary

education, including university

We support The Access Project (TAP) in the UK , a charity aiming to improve access to top universities for students from disadvantaged backgrounds. TAP train and support our staff to provide students with one-to-one tuition at GCSE and A level. Some 63% of TAP students go on to study at highly selective universities compared to 18% of state school students overall.

Substantially increase the number of youth and adults

with relevant skills

We work with Cooperativa Sao Pedro de Barcarena in Lisbon, which supports children, young people and adults with special needs and those who have difficulty in adapting to society or the world of work. Our ongoing pro bono legal advice helps them to further their work transcending the challenges of their clients in securing employment.

Eliminate gender disparities in education and ensure

equal access for all

Our support of the Independent Panel for Special Educational Advice sees our lawyers in the UK providing free advice and representation to parents and carers of young people with additional needs, ensuring they get the support to which they are entitled. Camfed tackles poverty and inequality by supporting marginalised girls to go to school and succeed, and by empowering young women to step up as leaders of change. Our longstanding partnership began in 2011 with a substantial review of their governance model, and was extended to funding the participation of an additional 2,000 girls through the innovative ‘Learner Guide’ programme. We are currently undertaking a pro bono review of the programme’s governance, to strengthen further the models and strategies that make Camfed’s impact so noteworthy.
Ensure that all youth achieve literacy and numeracy Pop Up is a growing literacy charity which we are assisting in developing an interactive website to encourage reading amongst children. For several years we have supported their programmes in Hackney, helping thousands of young people discover a love for language and story-telling. We have also provided a range of pro bono advice to help them grow safely and to protect much of their unique knowledge and learning. In South Africa, we work with help2read, enabling 480 children to receive over 17,000 hours of tutoring in eight primary schools.
