The Projects

At our events, charities pitch for 6 minutes before taking questions from the audience.

Bright Sparks is a primary school in Mohali, Northern India providing free education to 100+ children. They have been working with local shanty town families since 2008, helping more than 500 children receive an education that would otherwise be sent to work. Bright Sparks helps break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy in the area, widening the opportunities for children and young people. They are seeking funding for their new school premises.

First Give inspires young people to make a difference in their local community and get involved in social action. Through their work with schools First Give provides young people the opportunity to learn about social action and charitable giving. Since 2014, almost 200,000 young people have taken part in their core programme. They are now seeking funding to refine and extend their pilot with primary school children.

Since 2016, The Marie Colvin Journalists' Network (MCJN) has been supporting and empowering local Arabic-speaking women journalists facing gendered risks, discrimination and social pressures so that they can thrive in their careers. They are seeking funding to enhance their capacity and reach.
