"We consider requests for funding that meet the overall mission and goals of the Foundation. We fund a variety of time-bound projects, core costs, technical assistance and collaborative activities. However, each programme has its own funding criteria, geographic scope and requirements.
Child Abuse Programme - We envision a world in which all children are protected from sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We support initiatives to: 1) eliminate the sexual exploitation of children; 2) engage men and boys in combating the sexual abuse of children; and 3) promote systemic approaches to prevent violence against children.
Housing and Homelessness Programme - We focus on preventing homelessness by funding sustainable solutions that improve the economic and social wellbeing of marginalised youth, adults and families.
Environment - These two threats are disproportionately impacting the lives of the economically disadvantaged, a fact that has led us to focus on the conservation of marine resources and the mitigation of climate change."
