About us

Lightyear Foundation is a charity devoted to changing public perceptions about science and encouraging young people to be curious about the world around them. We deliver science practicals in schools in Ghana using cheap, locally available materials. We also run teacher-training workshops, and we have recently started a solar energy project in Ghanaian secondary schools. We are all about science in action, and believe that everybody should have the opportunity to unlock their potential, solve problems and engage with science to make the world a better place.

We are a volunteer-driven charity; we are powered by the people who get involved. Every year we take volunteers to Ghana to lead science lessons, training workshops and specific projects. Recently we have shifted our focus to spend more time embedding our ideas with teachers and the Ghana Education Service. We are always looking of people to help us go further, whether by travelling to Ghana, giving time, skills or money, or connecting us with like-minded organisations. We would love to hear from you.

Stay in touch via TwitterFacebook or our website mailing list and drop us a line if you want to get involved!

The Lightyear Foundation is a registered UK charity (no. 1150231).
