About us

Our vision is a world where the most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities are equipped with the key facts that can give them more control over their own health, and protect them from threats to their health and lives.

We create interactive audio-visual lessons about some of the world's biggest health and life threats, which are then recorded in local languages. We distribute the lessons online and on DVD so that all communities can access the information, whatever their level of education.

COVID-19 is everywhere, but it’s not the only problem

The pandemic has reached every corner of the world, having a huge impact on millions of lives. Yet for most of the world’s population, it’s just one more challenge, on top of many faced every day.

With resources diverted to tackle COVID-19, serious illness and deaths from malaria, TB, heart disease, diabetes, diarrhoeal disease, and more are all likely to have increased. Meanwhile, the impact of paused immunisation programmes will be felt for years to come.

So it’s no coincidence that Education Saves Lives has sent out more health education video lessons in 2021 than ever before. By mid-November, we’d sent over 16,000 DVDs to partners all around the world, reaching 3.2 million people.

Those lessons help families:

• learn how to avoid malaria

• make informed decisions about vaccination

• understand why cigarettes and alcohol can be addictive

• know what to do if someone’s blood pressure is too high

• and much more!

All this information is crucial in countries where families simply cannot afford to get sick, because medical care can be costly – if it’s available at all.

But we want to do more

Your donations have helped us update our recent lesson about COVID-19, start improving all our existing lessons, and crucially, provide more resources than ever before to vulnerable communities.

In 2022, we want to send out more DVDs, but that’s not all we’re planning. We also hope to scale up the use of new flash drive lessons that can help reach new groups, and we want to invest in large-scale distribution of all our materials, working with new partners in key areas.

None of what we do would be possible without the generous help of our supporters and friends – old and new. This Christmas, we’re celebrating all that we’ve achieved together, but there’s still a long way to go, and giving a gift really can save a life.

Thank you, and happy holidays.
