Study Group is proud to announce its Building Futures global walking challenge to support girls in Ghana

‘Building Futures’ is Study Group’s corporate social responsibility programme, established in partnership with development and humanitarian charity Plan International. Over the past 15 years, we have raised over £1m to help construct and fit-out schools and offer teacher training and resources for communities in need, in countries prone to natural disasters.

As part of our Building Futures fundraising efforts, we are proud to announce the launch of a global walking challenge this week. In this global walking challenge, Study Group staff are invited to create teams with other colleagues and secure sponsors in a friendly competition to track as many steps as they can to raise the most funds for Building Futures.

All funds raised will go towards our current Building Futures project: Girls in Ghana, which is aimed at improving the quality of, and access to, education for girls in rural Ghana, using innovative education technology and improving school learning environments.  The focus is on girls who are at risk of dropping out of school, providing support designed to help them make the transition from primary school to junior high school - a moment when many girls see their education end abruptly. 

As Nikki Hall, Chief People and Transformation Officer at Study Group comments:

“To support this important project and help girls in Ghana, we want our Global Challenge to be as simple, inclusive and beneficial for all staff members as possible.  

“By getting involved in the Global Walking Challenge, Study Group colleagues are making a real difference in these girls’ lives, whilst also connecting and having fun with colleagues.”  

“Walking also has the added benefits of boosting mental and physical health in several important ways, including improved sleep, better endurance, stress relief, improved mood, increased energy, weight loss and improved heart health.”
