MondoChallenge works with over 100 non-profit organisations across the world, supporting development work in education, business development, childcare, women’s empowerment, healthcare and community development. While our career break volunteers are themselves invaluable, their work is further strengthened by the financial support that the FutureSense Foundation provides.
The FutureSense Foundation is a registered charity operating in parallel to MondoChallenge’s volunteer work. It supports local communities by giving grants to individuals and organisations, and by providing human resources, facilities and additional finance as necessary. In this way it addresses a number of international development issues and supports marginalised individuals and communities by:
Volunteering abroad can be a life-changing experience and many MondoChallenge volunteers like to contribute further by giving donations and fundraising. Whether you are running a marathon or holding a dinner party, we are happy to give you advice and help you publicise your event through our network of contacts.
The FutureSense Foundation thus acts as the charitable and official fundraising wing of MondoChallenge’s voluntary work overseas. By managing and coordinating fundraising activities, distributing grants and reporting to donors, the Foundation helps to safeguard and expand sustainable development across the world.
The FutureSense Foundation supports a range of volunteer projects across the globe. Below is a snapshot of how your donations can make an impact.
Support for HIV/AIDS suffers
Our HIV/AIDS grant programmes help families in Africa suffering from the loss of husbands and fathers to HIV/AIDS. This career break project gives financial support and business advice to struggling families to help them build sustainable livelihoods, and to allow them to eat regular meals and live a life of dignity.
MondoChallenge’s education grant programme aims to make education more accessible to children from underprivileged backgrounds. Much of this voluntary work is targeted at children who do not attend school, but Foundation grants also help to improve the quality of education for those already attending in deprived areas.
Children Welfare Support
Our child welfare support programmes help orphanages and other disadvantaged children living in slums or on the streets. The grants provide funds for teaching facilities, health care, recreational activities and food, and provide invaluable support for volunteer work abroad.
