Developing Communities

Without boundaries, we can ensure dignity and opportunity, regardless of culture, creed, faith or location.

 

By collaborating with other philanthropic organizations, NGOs, governments and small-sized non-profits, we support thousands of sustainable projects to alleviate poverty in the most deprived communities of the world. Our work stretches far and wide, providing humanitarian assistance to ease poverty and famine, supporting development, health, education and infrastructure, and encouraging social entrepreneurship to achieve long-term, sustainable change.
