Our alumnus Tahmid Chowdhury is now an account manager at M&C Saatchi and the co-founder of his own charity, but he says such achievements once seemed like an impossible dream.

“There’s no way I’d be where I am today without The Access Project and I think that’s true for a lot of the kids who benefit from their work,” he says.

“Above all, the charity gives hope – that means everything to a 16-year-old council estate lad like I was who knows that the odds are stacked against him.”

Check out this video he made for us to explain just how much of an impact our programme has on his life and the lives of young people from backgrounds like his own.

If you’d like to help us support more bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve their full potential, donate to The Access Project through the Big Give today.
