A Global Charity Partnership with Comic Relief

Changing the lives of children around the world

Mohammed lives in Ghana. Meet Mohammed in the village where he lives and see how the money you raise for Flying Start has helped to give him and others a better life, with bike banks enabling him to get to school on time and community projects providing women with an income.

Our aim is to help transform the lives of millions of children just like Mohammed, across the globe.
