James Annan is living proof that one person can change a community and its environment.

Having paid his own way through school and university, James could have sat back and enjoyed his success. Instead he has selflessly dedicated himself to his village. James has built a classroom and employed two teachers to school deprived children in the evenings. With James being such a fantastic role model and providing scholarships, more children are now attending school.


And on top of all this, James has also set up a charity, Challenging Heights, to ensure long-term benefit for the local area. Not only is James devoting his time and skills, he's donating a lot of money too. Each year, his annual bonus goes towards running these community activities. And every month he sets aside a percentage of his income for scholarships.so very needy children can attend school too.
