We support a small number of organisations that operate outside of the UK. These organisations have adopted innovative and successful approaches to operating in their regions, in the most part through fully engaging the local communities themselves, from conception and development of intervention to long term sustainability and growth. This is key to any international cause we might consider supporting, though it should be noted that this is likely to remain a smaller area for us in terms of investment.

Egmont’s operating costs are covered by our Trustees and Patrons, enabling 100% of all donations to go directly to projects in Africa.
