What We Do
The objects of Future Academy UK are for the public benefit to advance in life and relieve the needs of refugees up to the age of 18, living in the UK and overseas, by developing their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals.
In the UK we provide activities designed to help refugee children settle quickly into their new environment and to access formal education successfully.
Overseas, we support UK-registered partner charities to provide educational opportunities to refugee children, by funding the travel expenses of volunteer teachers.
Education is the single most powerful means to improve the quality of life; the single most powerful weapon against poverty and intolerance.
