We have worked with Save the Children to support education projects in the UK and overseas.
In 2011 we committed £70,000 to bring Save the Children’s ‘Eat, Sleep, Learn, Play!’ and ‘Families and Schools Together’ programmes to Islington.
The programme worked with parents to give them the confidence and skills needed to take an active role in their children’s education, and benefitted over 100 families in the local area.
To coincide with the Arsenal Asia Tour in 2012, The Arsenal Foundation pledged £300,000 to Save the Children to support an education project in China, helping to improve the quality of education for disadvantaged children aged 6-15 in some of Beijing’s most under-resourced schools.
Together Arsenal and Save the Children committed to help train 285 teachers and 31 head teachers. The three-year programme impacted close to 30,000 young pupils.
We donated a further £300,000 to Save the Children’s work in Indonesia in 2013. The partnership delivered vocational training to 4,000 vulnerable young people in Bandung province, West Java over the course of three years.
