Please donate and help us give students around the world a better educational experience.
Professors Without Borders is a non-profit organization that brings top educators to universities around the world. We organize short ‘summer’ courses over two weeks where the focus is on building skills and confidence. The aim is to inspire and empower our students through education. Our educators are enthusiastic, student-focused and leaders in their subject field.
In our first year, we reached 125 students in Sierra Leone, bringing in 7 international educators and teaching courses in law, politics, economics and entrepreneurship. We also held a Model United Nations Simulation and workshops on research skills, presentation, teaching and writing. All this for under 10,000GBP.
Each year we have continued to expand around the world by hosting short courses and workshops at Fourah Bay College (Sierra Leone), Institute of Public Administration and Management (Sierra Leone), African Rural University, the first all women’s university in Africa (Uganda), Srinakharinwirot University (Thailand), Karamat Husain Muslim Girls PG College (India) and Avadh Girls PG College (India).
Our projects are supported by Richmond, the American University in London whose students and faculty have worked closely with us since the beginning.
We need your help to continue forming future professionals in developing countries. Here are examples of how your donations can make an impact:
- 25 GBP cover 10 books for students who can’t afford them
- 50 GBP cover the costs for one student to attend a 2-week summer school (3 courses a day)
- 500 GBP cover books for 200 students who can’t afford them
- 1,000 GBP cover the full costs of a conference
- 1,500 GBP cover the costs of one professor teaching abroad for 2 weeks, incl. flights, accommodation, visa, and insurance.
- 5,000 GBP cover a full summer school programme in Uganda or India, incl. travel and accommodation costs for our professors, as well as all teaching and learning equipment.
- 8,000 GBP cover a full summer school programme in Sierra Leone
We have been invited to carry out our ambitious project in universities and schools in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. With professors volunteering their time and passion, we have few costs and a huge impact, making us an efficient and worthwhile organization for you to support.
If you share our vision, please support our work and help us give students around the world a better educational experience.
