We are incredibly grateful to acclaimed actor Amanda Redman (New Tricks, At Home with the Braithwaites, Good Karma Hospital) for supporting Happily Ever Smarter, our first UK Aid Match campaign.

Amanda beautifully narrated our campaign launch film – released on 29th April – by award-winning animation studio Partizan. The film tells the story of Kanchi, one of the many bright, strong and determined students we’re helping to access education for the very first time, high in the Himalayas in Nepal.

Just ahead of launch, we spent some time discussing our plans with Amanda. Here’s what she shared about her deep connection with Nepal and the South Asia region, and motivations for supporting our campaign…

Match funding from the UK government will be used to help over 8,505 out of school children in some of the most remote areas in Nepal to go to primary school for the first time.

All donations will help marginalised children in remote communities to access life-changing education across Asia, so that they can live Happily Ever Smarter.

Together we can make going to school a reality for thousands of primary-school-age children, for the very first time in their lives.
