Teachers' resources

Support your fundraising for Build Africa with activities in the classroom that will give pupils an unforgettable insight into life in a rural African school.

We've got a great selection of resources to help you get started. From free curriculum-based lesson plans and educational school games to ready-made school presentations, this section has materials to help students really understand the cause they are supporting. You can bring the world into your classroom by linking with a school in Kenya or Uganda through our School Linking Programme.

Every pound makes a difference!

  • £350 could pay for community engagement sessions for one year, so rural communities can get involved in their school and have a say in how it’s run.
  • £900 could set up a support group for teachers in one school, enabling them to share and improve their skills so they can inspire their students.
  • £1,350 could help start a “buddying-up” scheme at one school, training older students and pairing them with younger ones so children receive the support they need from the moment they start education.
  • £2,550 could pay for curriculum-based text books and learning resources for a whole school, so children are able to understand their subject, revise for exams and successfully finish primary school.
  • £17,550 could sink a borehole for one school in a drought-prone area, giving children and teachers access to safe, clean water all year round, helping protect them from illness.
  • £19,500 could build an office block for teachers, including a stationary cupboard, providing a stable and productive environment for them to do their marking and administration work.
