Supporting Access to Education
ThirdWay Group has announced a new partnership between its charity venture, ThirdWay Trust, and educational charity, Sabre Education, to help tackle poverty in developing countries and the United Kingdom by funding access to early education.
ThirdWay Trust was first launched in partnership with UK charity, Toilet Twinning, incorporating the charity’s unique “twinning” initiative across projects, and actively encouraged clients to twin their projects’ toilets enabling the build of safe, clean latrines in developing countries across the globe. The Trust, which espouses the belief good health and a good education are a child’s best chance of escaping poverty, is committed to giving vulnerable communities access to improved education, clean water and life-saving hygiene practices.
ThirdWay Trust will continue to raise funds through expanding the twinning concept to more office areas.
Companies wishing to participate in the Trust’s twinning venture now have the option of Breakout Twinning, Boardroom Twinning and Office Furniture Twinning (through Tribe), alongside the existing Toilet Twinning offer. The new options allow companies to fund school furnishings, classrooms, kitchen facilities and school builds across Ghana. In addition, ThirdWay are currently exploring new initiatives to make improvements on home soil.
Jonathan Sweeney from ThirdWay Group explains how the new partnership follows on from the recent success of the trust’s links with the UK charity initiative Toilet Twinning:
“The ThirdWay Trust had an extremely successful first year working with Toilet Twinning, twinning 487 toilets through the charity and raising substantial funds through events and numerous internal and external campaigns. After “twinning” a client’s boardroom, which in-turn enabled the build of a classroom of a new school in Pakistan, we knew that this was the direction we wanted to go in when looking to increase our global impact in 2019. Whilst we still encourage toilet twinning and are fully committed to improving water hygiene in developing countries, we’re excited to have an additional partnership with Sabre Education who are committed to building better schools and improving education.”
Sabre Education works directly in Ghana to improve the futures of poor and marginalised children.
Discussing the partnership, Sabre Education’s Head of Fundraising and Communications, Nadine Adamski, said:
“Collaboration is one of Sabre Education’s core values and we rely on the strengths of our partnerships to raise Sabre’s profile and funds for our programmes in Ghana that are transforming the way Ghanaian children start their education. So, it is with absolute delight that we are forging a new partnership with ThirdWay and Tribe and we are excited to work with them on their innovative matching approach to fundraising.”
