Purpose & Structure

Charitable Purpose

The purpose of the Trust is to alleviate poverty and to improve access to education and essential life-sustaining services for those living in South East Asia, the Pacific, and New Zealand. This will be achieved by connecting businesses with an interest in social good with grassroots projects that require funding for their development initiative. Volunteers who can produce high quality communications content for these projects and provide it back to the business partners will also be matched.
