  • Mission statement

    Learning for Life's mission is to overcome poverty by providing South Asia's poor and oppressed with education and opportunity and to raise awareness of development issues and challenge stereotypes in the UK. Our vision is of a world where everyone has access to education, health, civil liberties, and safe, sustainable employment. We work with women, children, excluded and remote communities, and set up projects which are innovative, creative, sustainable and relevant to people’s lives. We currently have projects in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan and we work through our trusted local partners because we believe that lasting change comes from within communities.
