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.


Ropley School have yet again come up trumps! Our great friends at Ropley collected over £400 for us at one of their Christmas events. Our thanks go to Clare Molyneux and Pippa Burrows for making this happen.
