Peter Alan Dickson Foundation Annonces 2012 Grant Recipients

Children in Russia, Africa, India and the UK receive grants from The Peter Alan Dickson Foundation
The Peter Alan Dickson Foundation has today announced the most recent recipients of their rolling grants programme.

The Foundation, set up by Charles and James Dickson in memory of their father, allocates funding to education, youth and disaster relief projects being undertaken by UK charities working across the globe.

The recipients are:

ChildAid to Russia and the Republics who will be providing support to teenage women leaving institutional care in the Ukraine via an educational and life skills programme. The impact of this grant will enable these young women to gain the skills they require to live independently.

Build Africa who are currently developing the Kaleu Primary School in Uganda, which was originally established by parents in the area who were determined their children would not have to walk considerable distances to be provided with an education. The grant provided will support the construction of classrooms and latrines.

Manor Garden’s Welfare Trust (Community Kitchens Project) will use the grant provided to secure brighter futures for 30 disadvantaged young people by supporting them to learn independent living skills including food safety. These individuals will then be able to cook for themselves, gain budgeting skills and access vocational accredited training.

Kings World Trust will be funded to support their education outreach programme in rural Tanil Nadu, India which supports disadvantaged children in the area to access primary and secondary school educations as well as university places.

James Dickson, Founding Chairman of Trustees of the Peter Alan Dickson Foundation, was on the panel reviewing the applications: “We were thrilled with the wide range of applications received showcasing so many valuable causes. We had very many applications for funds and we were only able to fund a proportion of those who applied, the grant recipients outlined were those we felt provided some of the most inspirational projects in line with the areas we support”

The Peter Alan Dickson Foundation will assess its next grant round in October 2012. Application details can be found by visiting www.tarncourt.com and following through to the PAD Foundation menu option.
