Empowering Africa through Partnership


The Chalker Foundation supports health and community programmes in Africa. We focus on the creation of strategic partnerships between businesses and charities. These partnerships are committed to using their combined skills, expertise and funds towards empowering African communities. We also fund training projects for health and community workers. Our aim is to encourage the creativity, passion and talent of local people to help them achieve their own development goals.
