Michael Morpurgo presents The Radio 4 Appeal for Feed the Minds on Sunday 25 May at 07.55

Feed the Minds equips people in Africa and Asia who have missed out on an education with knowledge and skills they can use to change their lives and communities for the better. They do this by working with local organisations to deliver ‘Education for Change’ projects that integrate literacy training with civic education, health education, vocational training or peacebuilding. They focus their efforts on adults, as few educational initiatives target the 774 million people over the age of 15 worldwide who lack basic reading and writing. They prioritise work with women, as they find it particularly difficult to access educational opportunities and represent 2/3 of the world’s non-literate.

To Give:
– Freephone 0800 404 8144
– Freepost BBC Radio 4 Appeal, mark the back of the envelope ‘Feed the Minds’.
