  • The Trustees fund work in Africa. At present they favour projects based in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Uganda, Sudan and South Sudan.
  • Priority will be given to work with communities living in urban slums and semi-arid regions where economic hardship is most extreme.
  • The Trustees would welcome applications from Sahelian countries as long as they can be submitted in English.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Trustees tend to offer grants to smaller, grass-roots organisations and do not generally respond to appeals from large and well-supported charities.
  • The Trustees welcome applications from diaspora led organisations based and registered in the UK.
  • The Trust is willing to consider direct applications from registered civil society organisations in Africa or UK based charities which might be diaspora organisations based in the UK.
  • Applications need to be made in English.
  • Trustees expect to see a strong relationship between the applicant organisation and the community that will benefit from the grant. This is demonstrated when the applicant shows a clear understanding of the economic, environmental and social issues facing the community.
  • Trustees like to see practical ways in which communities will be strengthened by the work they fund and, especially, how women and girls will be empowered.
