Schools and young people

Get your school involved today and help us give hope to people affected by leprosy.

Whether you’ve worked with us before or are new to Lepra we are excited to have you on board. Lepra have been working with schools and youth groups for over 50 years to educate young people about the damaging effects of the world’s oldest and most neglected disease, leprosy. Choosing to support Lepra throughout the school year is a great way to engage your students through exciting fundraising activities and build on their current learning – all whilst raising crucial funds. Together, we will beat leprosy.

Arrange a virtual assembly today, and one of our friendly community fundraisers will work with you to deliver a personalised virtual, educational and impactful presentation to your students.

Start your fundraising now, it’s easy to set up your own school JustGiving Page. Make sure you set a target and share your fundraising as widely as possible!

From 30 November 2021-31 March 2022, and with thanks to the generosity of our wonderful donors, we're holding our £1 from you, we get two appeal! This means that every pound you raise between now and 31st March 2022 will qualify for matched fundraising, meaning your school can help to change the lives of twice as many people! Find out more about our £1 from you, we get two appeal.

Our education project has been designed by teachers and experts in international aid to support school's own strategies around embedding British Values and Citizenship curriculum effectively into pupils learning.  It offers the opportunity for students to learn about the importance of charities and the role they play as global citizens.

“At Trinity Academy we involve first and second year pupils annually in fundraising for Lepra. It brings these two year groups together to work towards a positive purpose in support of a very important cause.”

Our Supporters

We would like to say a huge thank you to you, our school supporters. Your support has helped us change the lives of children like Shakila, who was diagnosed with leprosy at just 7.

“At Chailey School, our year 7 students have been supporting Lepra as their chosen group charity for the past three years. The students are very enthusiastic about fundraising for this charity as they are shown a very powerful assembly to get them motivated. We put lots of pictures of staff and students getting involved on the school website which has helped to raise the profile of Lepra within our school community. It is a great charity, it focuses on young people, and I hope we continue to work together with Lepra for the foreseeable future.”

J Hickman – Year 7 Student Support and Transition Manager, Chailey School, East Sussex.
