Why LabAid?

Many secondary schools around the world do not have any science equipment. Therefore few of their students pass compulsory practical examinations.

What can be done to help?

Schools, colleges, universities and companies in the UK often have suitable apparatus that could be donated. LabAid can supply this to requesting schools in Africa and other developing countries.


  • Schools from developing countries send requests to LabAid
  • Volunteer collectors bring the donated apparatus to the facility in Amersham, Bucks, UK
  • Volunteer technicians repair, refurbish, check and pack it
  • Packages are collected at Amersham. We do not transport or ship.

Is it making a difference?

It is enabling many more students to enter careers in science.

With donations, LabAid could do more.
