The FutureSense Foundation
The FutureSense group coordinates volunteers and raises funds to support overseas partners and volunteer programmes through its UK-registered charity, the FutureSense Foundation.
The Foundation targets education, child welfare, livelihoods and other selected areas as a means to address a range of development issues. Charity fundraising is a central component of the Foundation’s work and allows it to support those volunteering abroad and to invest in underprivileged individuals and communities as it works towards:
Helping create sustainable and secure livelihoods
Improving the transfer of vocational and entrepreneurial skills
Addressing issues related to health and HIV/AIDS
Promoting child welfare
Empowering people living with disabilities
Enabling voluntary participation and cultural exchange
The funds that the FutureSense Foundation provides are distributed in a number of ways. They can be invested into large-scale projects that improve school infrastructures and community centres, or they can assist individuals more directly, through tuition fee grants and macro-business programmes. It is important to remember that not all the funds you raise will go directly onto the project you support -this is simply because other projects may need it more.
As a Challenges Abroad volunteer abroad you will be helping the FutureSense Foundation to achieve its development goals and by raising funds to support your trip you can continue to make a positive impact even after you return.
