About The Pharo Foundation
Africa has a great future, and the seeds of that future are already there. The Pharo Foundation waters those seeds by working with people living in the most disadvantaged and marginalised communities in Africa, helping them to develop the skills, knowledge and resources they need to become economically self-reliant.

In our programmes, we give priority to four areas at the root of any community’s ability to support itself:
  • education
  • health
  • water, sanitation and hygiene
  • agricultural development.

The programmes we support are all about people, though we’ll fund buildings or infrastructure if they’re essential to a programme’s success. We’re interested in helping people to run their own lives – rather than funding a new clinic, we’ll back the training of the staff who work there, or we’ll help a community to develop a strong agricultural supply chain instead of handing over sacks of seeds. Always, our programmes are led by the community itself.
