Setting up a charity takes time – and I didn’t want to waste time with admin and paperwork! I wanted to set up the Jeremy Lucas Education Fund quickly and efficiently so that we could start changing young people’s lives immediately.
And so, the easiest way to do this was to go through my sister’s organisation Ewaso Lions. One of the main benefits of this is the Ewaso Lions team is on the ground working with local communities and the young people within them. They are the ones that we want to give life-changing education opportunities to. And, they already have the infrastructure and mentors in place to support new students due to their existing scholarship programme.
Ewaso Lions receives all its donations via the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) an organisation that works with local conservationists to support their grass roots projects – encouraging people and wildlife to co-exist. Education of future generations is a key aspect of this.
So, to sponsor a young person’s secondary education, and literally change their lives by giving them an education they would never have had the ability to pay for, please do donate using the following link/process.

You can choose how much and how often to donate. Nothing is too small – it all adds up and helps us to choose more young people to go through secondary school.
When you donate via WCN you can be sure that all the money you donate goes directly into the Jeremy Lucas Education Fund. Neither WCN nor Ewaso Lions takes a cut of the money. You also know that WCN will hold Ewaso Lions and in turn the Jeremy Lucas Education Fund accountable for how and where the money is spent.
