Access to Education for All

Between October 5 and November 8 2020 we ran the Access to Education for All campaign, raising essential funds to ensure that Scholars’ studies were not disrupted by Covid-19.

We raised £9,025.09 thanks to the generosity of our donors. This was then matched by a partner meaning that £18,050.18 went directly towards supporting Ashinaga UK Scholars during the pandemic.

We hosted a calendar of online events during the campaign:
