AFBE-UK is excited to announce its partnership with Mission 44, who joins the organisation as one of its newest member.
Mission 44 was founded by Sir Lewis Hamilton to build a fairer, more inclusive future in which every young person can thrive. The foundation supports bold organisations, leaders and ideas to reimagine the future and transform the lives of young people from underserved communities through grant making, research and advocacy.
Mission 44 is focused on building a more inclusive education system, opening doors to careers within STEM, motorsport, and the creative industries, and empowering young people to become an influential force for change.
Mission 44 continues the work and commitment of the Ignite Partnership, founded by Sir Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team to increase diversity and inclusion within motorsport
"We’re delighted to partner with Mission 44. We hope we can build upon the successes we’ve had, scale them up in new contexts and show the many opportunities that exist, especially in motorsports for young people. We can’t wait to get started.” said Ollie Folayan, Co-founder of AFBE-UK
"We know that for young people from underserved communities to progress in STEM and motorsport, we need to provide more opportunities now. That’s why I am delighted Mission 44 will be partnering with AFBE-UK to drive impact, contribute to long-term change, and provide young people with the chance to thrive.”
