FIOH Education and Development Fund

Donate


Future in Our Hands Education and Development Fund is working to alleviate poverty in the world’s poorest communities.
It was established as registered charity in July 1995 (No. 1047953).

Sustainability
The FIOH Fund supports approaches that aim to alleviate poverty in a sustainable way by focussing on projects which:

  • are initiated by poor people through local non-government organisations
  • incorporate a strong element of education and training
  • enhance the status and involvement of women in the development process
  • create ecological awareness

An enabling and motivating approach
Our approach is based on a belief that development policies imposed on a community, without proper consultation and the active involvement of the people, can frequently compound their problems and create a climate of dependency.
The FIOH Fund has helped to empower people in peace, conflict and natural disaster situations to establish activities which are both economically and environmentally sustainable in the long term.
The Fund has supported a wide variety of projects which reflect our philosophy in urban slums, leprosy colonies and poor rural areas.

How you can help
We welcome your support whether you would like to make an individual donation or would like to become involved in fund-raising for a specific project.
We can supply details of individual small projects and feedback as the project progresses.

Since its registration in July 1995, the charity has supported projects in Cameroon, Pakistan, India, Sierra Leone, Thailand, Philippines, Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, Liberia, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Ghana, Tanzania, Gambia and Sri Lanka, with a focus on helping the world’s poorest and most marginalized communities.  Many of the projects in India have helped tribal communities.
Most projects have involved an element of women’s empowerment, education and vocational training.  The chart below shows the apportionment of FIOH Fund grants (1995 – 2015) into broad categories.
