Worldaware works in the UK to raise awareness of international development issues.

About Worldaware

New lease of life for Worldaware

Although the Worldaware charity has ceased trading, and its published materials are now out of print SOS Children has agreed to take on the role of raising awareness of development issues in UK schools, and has taken over the Worldaware brand and website. However, although copyright for Worldaware materials has been transfered to SOS Children we do not have copies of many of them. If you have Worldaware material then perhaps you could send us a copy? See History of Worldaware for more details.

Development Education Centres

Some resources that are listed here can be found from your local Development Education Centre — for address details it is easiest to type your location and "Development Education Centre" into Google

PLEASE NOTE THAT no listed worldaware resources are in stock anymore, and that we do not supply materials listed in the directory. The directory is to inform you that a resource exists so that you can try to source it.

We are also trying to find and provide archived material to help with development education, most recently by restoring Just Business, the Business Ethics website . We also provide websites on child soldier projects, comparing child sponsorship programmes, charity schools, street children and Emergency Relief.
