Who We Are
We are here not for income, but for outcome
From humble beginnings, our trustees and pillar members have built Bettering Education from the ground up. We understand what it is like to struggle with confidence, communication and other soft skills, we have all been there! We have all also started from humble beginnings, somewhere on the poverty spectrum. Individually, we created methods to develop our own soft skills and now, these need to be shared to help society’s most vulnerable young people.
The charity was formed in South West London. In our earlier days, the founding members began with focus groups of young people. This helped us to run some initial research and explore what they lacked. And understand what they needed. It also brought us our first few beneficiaries.
We spent full days working from Coffee shops as we constructed a stable foundation for growth, running workshops in libraries.
Our quest to help young people lead us to meet some extraordinary young leaders and their businesses. Always Kreative, a youth network functioning in Brixton, South London helped us on our way by providing access to an amazing space called Raw Materials.
We managed to win an award presented by the youth marketing specialist Livity and we became ‘entrepreneurs in residence’ where we currently reside in the heart of an effervescent and creatively pulsating Brixton.
Our journey has been filled with sacrifice, highs and lows but none of us would change it for the world because we actually believe we can change the world!
