Play to Power-up Change-makers

Gaming connects people across the world: whether you are playing in Zambia, Nigeria, Lesotho or the UK, you are part of a global community. Gaming also enables us to do things we could never do in real life, transforming us into powerful heroes or managers of whole civilizations.

Community and empowerment are at the heart of our work providing education and training to orphaned students from sub-Saharan African countries, so that they will be equipped to initiate change, innovation, and development in their communities.
