We channel our funding through three routes.


Our Education Fund distributes funds to individuals, specifically but not exclusively in the developing world, who either through poverty or other circumstance would find it impossible to participate in educational activities that provide opportunities to develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals


To provide support to individuals or charities that are working to improve communities through the provision of positive activities to engage youth and demonstrate positive routes to fulfil their life potential.


Our Disaster Fund distributes funding to individuals, families and charitable organisations in the developing world where a disaster has occurred or who have been affected by disasters and who either through poverty or lack of other resources need support to overcome the terrible circumstances that have affected their lives
