SEPIA is a small family run charity which hopes to improve the lives of people in Africa through the development of educational projects. With your help, we can enhance the facilities within schools, grant bursaries to students and teachers to allow them to further their education and work with local communities to improve access to safe water and sanitation







SEPIA is a small family run not for profit organisation recognised as charitable by HMRC. It was set up by Michael Clarke (a secondary school teacher) with support from Helen Clarke (a university lecturer) and Aaron, their son in 2008. The main purpose of the charity is to develop and support educational projects in Africa. We are currently working in Ghana and offer bursaries to allow schools to improve the provision of education to their pupils where government funding can not be found.
