Today we are facing a test. This is a time to remember everything that excites, inspires and encourages us, because when we are together it is easier to get ahead. This is how we understand it at the British Council, and that's why we stay connected: we are moved to be with you and support you when you need it most.

When we stand together we achieve great opportunities, projects and initiatives that transform and inspire lives. This proves that each one of us has a unique talent and is capable of inspiring others. We are still here because we know that challenges are best overcome when we are together-- now we must demonstrate it.

We want you to get excited and get to know more about some projects that motivate us and remind us that resilience and optimism have no limits. Discover, enjoy, and share the below stories with your friends and family, because sharing connects us right now. We will all come out of this together!
