"Education is a human right with immense power to transform. On its foundation rest the cornerstones of freedom, democracy and sustainable human development" Kofi Annan
The goal of Windle is to make a contribution to peaceful development in Africa.

Each Windle Intl comes together to shape the overall strategy through the Council, we work together with refugees and conflict-affected communities:

• to develop leadership and professional skills

• to provide educational opportunity to those who lack it

• to promote equity in access to education

• to improve the quality of education

Windle has a long term commitment to the communities we serve. We accompany refugees as they rebuild their lives and equip themselves to establish a peaceful future for their countries.

  • Windle International as a whole has provided educational support and scholarships to refugees from countries such as Burundi, Somalia, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Congo, South Sudan, Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somaliland. Windle International is comprised of offices and national Windle Trusts in the following countries:

  • Windle Intl Uganda works throughout the refugee settlements in Uganda and is the main implementing partner for UNHCR. WIU also supports IDPs and conflict-affected communities in Northern Uganda

  • Windle Intl Kenya works primarily in the refugee camps of Dadaab and Kakuma with populations of over 600,000 people. WIK also supports the host nation by offering access to education to surrounding vulnerable communities such as for the Turkana, Fafi and Lagdera.

  • Windle Trust Intl UK runs the Masters Scholarship programme in Universities across the breadth of the UK. WTI UK is also responsible, at present, for the Windle programmes in South Sudan and Sudan as both these Windle offices have not yet become independent Trusts with their own local Board and national governance.
