The joy of giving lies at the heart of a pilot scheme due to be launched in 10 London schools.
Under The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative, schools receive a pound;3,000 grant, which teams of pupils must then bid for on behalf of selected local charities.
The teams visit their chosen good cause and then give presentations to make the case for why the money should go to the charity.
The idea was developed by the Canadian cosmetics entrepreneur Julie Toskan Casale and already runs in 120 schools in Canada.
The Institute for Philanthropy, in partnership with the Toskan Casale Foundation, will launch the UK pilot in September.
