Founded in 2017, The Foundation was setup to support general charitable purposes, giving grants to the elderly, young, disabled and disadvantaged. Focussed on international development and humanitarian issues. Our mission is to work with projects that lead to the reduction of poverty, the alleviation of suffering and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.
We like to make grants which will make a difference; preference will be given to charities or projects that address the challenges of poverty, education, health and the conservation of the natural environment. We are particularly interested in hearing about projects within developing countries.
Projects will be be considered if they are able to provide formal education – teaching vocational skills to enhance the chances of employment, improving self reliance and health awareness.
We want to hear from projects that have been setup to support disaster relief, and that provide humanitarian aid in times of crisis or in the midst of global pandemics.
Grant Application Process
As a small foundation we accept and review grant applications on a fluid and flexible bases. The granting of funds will be done on an adhoc bases and is at the discretion of the trustees who meet periodically to discuss our aims and priorities.
