Our Supported Charities

In a world that is so focused on self and what 'we' can get out of life, we choose to live our lives to make a difference beyond ourselves to stand out as we live our lives to make a difference beyond ourselves.

Beyond Ourselves is a charitable project that was set up by local businesses (Stephen James BMW & MINI and Big & Red Storage) who desire to use their time, skill and profits beyond themselves both at home and abroad.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"
Nelson Mandela

Beyond Ourselves are passionate about education and enabling long-lasting community transformation in Zambia through quality education.

Since 2009, Beyond Ourselves has formed partnerships with community schools in the Copperbelt region of Zambia to help resource and develop the teaching and learning of the children, many of whom are orphans or vulnerable children. We empower development and release potential through professional guidance, as well as financial assistance in teachers' salaries, school feeding programmes and high school bursaries.

We support the teaching and senior staff of community schools, by offering training and professional development with the aim that they will be able to offer a high standard of education and enable these children to reach their potential and ultimately to break the cycle of poverty.

Over the years the professional support we offered to our partner schools has widened to include additional community schools and, in 2018, we started conducting training with government schools and those in the private sector.

Our heart is to build relationships within the communities we find ourselves a part of, invest in them practically and share our faith.
