Xavier Project has been working in East Africa for 10 years offering education opportunities to refugees of all ages. Our mission is to ensure that refugees are able to lead safe and fulfilled lives, whatever their background, and we believe education is the best tool to achieve this.

A Brief History

Xavier Project was founded by Edmund Page in 2008 as a result of his own experience of volunteering at an informal school in Uganda. Edmund witnessed Congolese children who could not recognise ABC. Following his trip, he committed to sponsoring eight Congolese refugees through school in Kampala. Xavier Project now supports the formal and tertiary education of thousands of children and adult refugees across Kenya and Uganda through community-based partnerships and pioneering learning programmes.
