Egmont Trust




Vulnerable Communities



Across Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, 25 million people are infected with HIV. Millions more are affected. The impact AIDS has on some of the world's poorest people is immeasurable and it is not only a health issue - the devastating, long term social and economic impact is felt for generations, and the most vulnerable in society - children and women - are often the most affected.

Since 2005, The Egmont Trust has committed over £13.2 million to 118 partner organisations in Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Their staff draw on extensive local networks and contacts to find inspirational grassroots organisations that are able to deliver tangible results in improving the lives of children affected by HIV & AIDS. With Egmont's Patrons & Trustees covering all operating costs in the UK and Africa, Egmont ensures that 100% of all donations go directly to projects making a difference to AIDS affected families.

Currently, Treebeard is providing funding to support Vision of Hope, a Zambia-based project which aims to reduce the number of young girls and women living on the streets of Lusaka by reintegrating them with their families – where possible – and supporting them to lead safe, independent lives away from the street.
