The awards that we make are gifts, not loans.

All that we ask of our beneficiaries is that they keep us informed of their educational progress.

We like to meet our beneficiaries personally, so that we can build up a relationship that is more than just that between donor and recipient.

The importance of this to us is that it gives us a chance to explain directly to the applicant what we are hoping to achieve through the Charity.


“A tree uses what comes its way to nurture itself. by sinking its roots deeply into the earth, by accepting the rain that flows towards it, by reaching out to the sun, the tree perfects its character and becomes great…..absorb. absorb, absorb. That is the secret of the tree” – Deng Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao, 1996.
