British Council

The British Council’s work in developing countries helps people and societies achieve positive and sustainable change.

We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society.

Our longstanding experience of policy and project development and management in developing countries enables us to help people and societies work towards achieving lasting impact.
