A wealth of information on the path the Foundation has followed, the partnerships it has formed, and the results it has achieved.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to fulfil its mission, the Foundation regularly reviews the scope of its operations. Some geographical areas or sectors of action that previously received funding but are no longer part of our current operations may therefore appear during your search.
