Requirements And Benefits: The Global Educational Trust runs projects in the UK and worldwide to provide educational opportunities for all, and to promote literacy amongst the young and old. We believe that by providing a basic education it is possible to help people out of poverty, individuals become teachers for others and whole communities can benefit.
Our main activity in the UK is the provision of free books shops, books are saved from landfill and pulping and instead are offered free to customers. Whilst visiting the shop customers can also learn more about the charity. Our free books shops are run by volunteers who are free to run their own shop, they will receive support from myself remotely, and the charity Trustees will visit the shop too. These shops have been proved to be extremely successful and our volunteers have flourished.
