We fund education where opportunity is rare but talent is not

Rare Charity offers talented young people within tea producing communities access to education.  Our ambition is to equip young people with the agency to implement long-term and sustainable social change in their own ways, and on their own terms.

Rare Charity disrupts established thinking about sustainable development, aid and charitable giving in three crucial ways:

1. Rare scholars are people, not statistics.

We tailor our scholarships to the individual’s needs, and not to our own agenda.

2. We stay in touch.

We prioritise personal connections over costly core personnel: the impact of your donations is direct, tangible and instantly visible.

3. Our educational opportunities run two ways.

We seek to educate the public about the communities to which tea has already connected them.
