Education Trust Fund

Having parents is a blessing all too well understood by an orphan child. This is a child that has nobody to protect and nurture her, and as a result she is vulnerable to a life of disadvantage and exploitation.

While nothing can replace a lost parent, scholarships can create an opportunity for an orphan child to go to school, make new friends, and become educated. Getting an education is a permanent solution to extreme poverty particularly the kind many orphans face every day. The scholarship ensures that orphan children are able to access the same level of schooling as those whose families can afford to.

 School Fees

Impact of Small Donations

  • When considering poverty in the developing world, many people feel deep sorrow but conclude that there is nothing we can do. The scale of poverty is immense and we seem powerless to stop it. Such despair is understandable, but the facts tell a very different story. While poverty is indeed extreme and widespread, it is easy to forget just how many people there are in the developed world, and how powerful our pocket change can become when pooled together.
  • When giving to REFoundation, the size of your donation directly correlates with the number of people you are able to help. But you don't have to be a millionaire to make a significant difference; even small donations have the potential to drastically improve an individual's quality of life.
