LEF is an Essex based non-profit where children and young people are at the heart of the organisation.

the mission

The Little Edi Foundation is an Essex based non-profit where children and young people are at the heart of the organisation. We believe all children should have equal access to education and learning development, enabling them to reach their full potential. To achieve this, we focus on creating development opportunities for disadvantaged young people from local areas this may include giving aid including fresh food, toys, school equipment and uniform, chances to volunteer distributing aid or offering grants to volunteer overseas in Europe’s poorest country, Moldova. 

our vision

For  the most vulnerable children in the UK and overseas to have the chance to reach their full potential.  By supporting our educational community-based projects both in the UK and in Moldova, our students of the UK Youth Development Project have benefited from improved relationships with peers and adults, improved behaviour and management of emotions, and increase in their self-esteem. We believe by providing them the opportunity to “give back”, they have developed key skills that prepare them for the working world and reduce the cycle of poverty through generations.
