BBC Radio 4 Appeal

Education doesn't have to end when conflict begins

BBC Radio 4 Appeal – Education doesn’t have to end where conflict begins!

We are pleased to announce that Fi Glover will present our charity appeal on Sunday June 11th at 7:54 am and 9:26 pm on BBC Radio 4.

The Appeal 

The appeal will focus on how simple tools, like radio, can keep education going in war-torn countries like South Sudan. Education doesn’t have to end when conflict begins. Africa Educational Trust’s Radio Schools bring skills and knowledge to people who missed out on formal school.
