A warm welcome to the Fonthill Foundation website

The Fonthill Foundation is a charity which has been associated with education for more than two centuries. The Foundation is working on a number of initiatives with educational partners both in the UK and overseas to enrich, develop and create new opportunities – helping others help themselves to help others.

Contain-A-School Programme…

Our Contain-A-School Programme recycles unwanted school and office equipment from the UK to schools in Africa where it is desperately needed. Working with trusted charity partners overseas, the ‘school in a container’ literally transforms education opportunities for hundreds of young people.

We also give young people from the UK life-changing opportunities to spend time working in our partner schools. From refurbishing classrooms and building play areas, to teaching children or running football competitions, the experience truly changes lives on both sides of the world.


Foundation Foundation works in three project areas.
