EduSport Inspires Us!

Big Yellow Self Storage’s Swindon store has provided free storage to EduSport – the charity that sponsors talented but poor, handicapped or orphaned African children. It has been campaigning to collect hundreds of books so they can build libraries in Zambia. The charity was established in 1999 and uses sport, recreation and other forms of physical activities as a means to achieve empowerment, education and health in poor communities in Zambia. Programs are currently being implemented in 6 of 9 provinces of Zambia and it is easily the largest Sport NGO / charity in Zambia.

With so many books to send over, the charity needed somewhere safe to keep the fruits of all their hard work. We felt that all their efforts and determination to succeed should not go unnoticed. We decided to help out EduSport with their storage requirements free of charge so that they could continue their important work. Hopefully, some of Zambia’s most deserving children will now get access to vital learning resources.
