Raleigh International is a youth and sustainable development charity. The young people who go on a Raleigh expedition work on sustainable development projects in rural communities overseas. They experience a personal journey like no other. Raleigh changes young people's lives.
Without fundraising, Raleigh wouldn't exist.
Support Young People
"Before Raleigh, I spent most of my time drinking and getting on the wrong side of the law. I was homeless at 16 years old. I'd always wanted to do charity work and always dreamed of travelling but I could barely afford to feed myself some weeks. Then I was given the chance to do a Raleigh expedition. I now see the world in a new light. I left school without any formal qualifications and Raleigh has inspired me to go out and get some. I learnt all about different cultures and met friends from all over the world. Raleigh has given me self belief and changed my life forever."

In India, 69% of people do not have access to a toilet. This can lead to the contamination of water sources, putting communities at risk of disease. Children are sick and miss school. Women put themselves in danger every night by going into the forest alone in the dark. Raleigh teams work together with rural communities to build eco-sanitation toilets to help address this issue.
Raleigh also works on delivering a clean and sustainable water supply to those in need of this basic human requirement. Visit our photostory to learn more.
