Hi & Thanks for Visiting Our Site!

Four Great Friends From University are helping The Atlas Foundation to deliver much needed equipment to a number of Children's Projects in Africa.

100% self funded we have paid for flights and costs of the trip ourselves so all your money goes to the Charity! Please visit the Atlas Foundation fund raising site to learn more about the amazing work they do around the world trying to improve the lives of Kids.

For only £1k we provide coaching and educational support for 120 kids in one school for a year. That’s less than £10 per child per year. In current projects this has taken their exam passes from 15% to 80% at critical age 16 exams, allowing kids to step out of the cycle of poverty and into a better future.

Please give anything you can we would be humbled by anything. 

Thanks Clocks, Norm, Tawsey & Rob.
