No child’s educational success should be limited by their socio-economic or geographical background. Education-related inequalities have an impact over a person’s life-span, not just in childhood.
The David Doig Foundation believes that access to education should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstances, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to achieve their true potential.
As outlined in David’s story, not everyone has David’s determination and self-belief to succeed in life and many need a helping hand to unlock potential.
The Foundation will support a broad range of activities – in Scotland and worldwide – that will enable disadvantaged young people to access educational opportunities, build aspirations and help to transform lives. This could be around building confidence and self-esteem to enable a return to education, providing opportunities and access to activities that might not otherwise be available to young people due to their circumstances, or for work with children who are at risk of or have been excluded from mainstream education.
It is important that David’s qualities, his values, his beliefs and most of all – his memory – will live on. By helping to transform lives, The David Doig Foundation will build a lasting memorial to David’s energy, dedication and passionate belief in education and helping others.

A 2nd Cup was established in 2012 to raise awareness of human trafficking issues in Houston—and to develop resources that help create a second chance for survivors.
The brainchild of Erica Raggett, A 2nd Cup was always meant to be more than a coffee shop. It was envisioned as a place where people could organize, collaborate, make an impact—or just make themselves at home in a modern café setting. We offer gourmet drinks, knowledgeable baristas and a spacious, relaxed atmosphere—all centrally located in the heart of The Heights.
Their proud to offer a space that brings people together. They’re proud to be a force for change in Houston. And they’re proud to serve coffee with a cause.
EVERY CUP BRINGS US CLOSER TO ENDING HUMAN TRAFFICKING. FREEDOM NEVER TASTED SO GOOD.Erica Raggett
