About Us

Making education accessible for all.

Learning By Heart is a campaign with 2 principal goals: to provide children and adults in the UK with the educational support they need, while in turn helping to widen access to education for young people across the world. 

We provide online classes in a range of subjects, run by volunteer tutors, in exchange for a pay-as-you-feel donation which we pass on to our partner organisations. Currently, our proceeds are split equally between two fantastic organisations: CAMFED (the Campaign for Female Education) and Education Cannot Wait.

 

CAMFED do incredible work to increase the accessibility of and revolutionise girls’ education in Sub-Saharan Africa. Click here to find out more.

Education Cannot Wait is the United Nations global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises. Click here to find out more.

 

There are no prerequisites to becoming a pupil with Learning By Heart; we just ask for a passion for learning, and a donation of what you are happy and able to give to the cause.

 

With our pay-as-you-feel system, we hope to allow as many people to benefit from our service as possible. For further details about how our tutoring works, and to see the subjects on offer, click here.

'I've been taking French lessons with a native speaker through LBH because I wanted to enhance my speaking fluency and it's really helped me. Also, I like the idea that funds are going towards kids' education.'

Education Cannot Wait

50% of our proceeds go to Education Cannot Wait. Keep reading for details of the amazing work that they do!

 

Education Cannot Wait (ECW) is the United Nations global fund for education in emergencies and protracted crises. It supports and protects holistic learning outcomes for refugee, internally displaced and other crisis-affected girls and boys, so no one is left behind.

 

ECW works through the multilateral system to both increase the speed of responses in crises and connect immediate relief and longer-term interventions through multi-year programming.

ECW works in close partnership with governments, public and private donors, UN agencies, civil society organizations, and other humanitarian and development aid actors to increase efficiencies and end siloed responses.

 

It urgently appeals to public and private sector donors for support to reach even more crisis-affected girls and boys - including adolescents.

ECW is administered under UNICEF’s financial, human resources and administrative rules and regulations; operations are run by the Fund’s own independent governance structure.

We are thrilled to be working with ECW and look forward to seeing the fund continue to make a global impact.
