The charity, which is run by the sister of alumna Estelle Allen (LEH 2012-2017), is installing internet connections and technology in rural areas of Namibia and South Africa, which allows the streaming of live lessons to these remote communities.

“Having done this myself over the last year, I can assure teachers that this is a truly wonderful, interesting and fulfilling experience,” says Marnie Allen.  If you would like to take part in the trial, or are interested in finding out more, please email her at
