Who We Are

We are working for education for all in the face of conflict and poverty.


Education is a right. It is also the most requested service, and key, to helping communities move towards peace and prosperity. Supporting education is a recognition of people’s enormous potential and the right to a better future.


When you support AET you are helping to build stronger education systems that will provide education to everyone. You are also giving people who missed out on school the chance to gain the skills and knowledge they want and need.


Everyone deserves an education regardless of age or gender, religion or physical capacity, ethnic group or displacement through conflict. Education is essential if people are to participate in the life of their own communities.

Take on the Manchester Marathon 2020 and Give the Gift of Education

The ASICS Manchester Marathon has announced that part of the route for the 2020 event, taking place on Sunday 5th April 2020, will for the first-time head into the centre of Manchester.

The amended route takes a three-mile loop into the city centre, showcasing some of the city’s most iconic landmarks including the Manchester Opera House, Spinningfields, Albert Memorial Hall and The Midland Hotel amongst many others. Roads will be completely closed, allowing an estimated 25,000 people to take part, and thousands more to gather in the city centre to watch.

The start will remain in its present location under the White City Arch, with the world-famous backdrop of Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium, and continue to offer its popular finish running past Trafford Town Hall and Lancashire Cricket Club.

Not only is this your chance to take part in one of the UK’s premier running events, famous for its fast, flat and friendly route; you will be supporting the most severely disadvantaged in fragile, conflicted and post-conflict regions of Africa every mile of the way.

Whatever your ability, this closed-road event is one of the running highlights of the year and you could be part of it by joining Team AET in 2020!

Every penny you raise will be put towards providing education to people who desperately want to learn.
