The Africa Trust works to bring Sustainable solutions to poverty in Africa. This includes establishing sustainable supplies of clean productive water and decent sanitation. Income generating projects are used to pay school fees, improve clinics and generate the funds needed to run orphanages. Wealth generation is an important objective, with business skills training, helping school leavers and villagers to start or expand profitable businesses. Funds are circulated to catalyse projects and are then extracted to establish new projects or to invest in expansion.
