The aim of the BIG Foundation is to provide charitable support to selected community and educational projects and organisations in Africa, in partnership with the Camps Foundation.
The first project is to build, from the bricks up, a nursery for the Itinyi Primary School where 70 youngsters currently learn outside. The school is in a remote, semi-arid area of the Tsavo region where over 65% of the population live below the poverty line. The BIG Foundation is fundraising and providing hands-on support to improve the infrastructure and facilities at the school.
Every year, as part of the fundraising effort, we will organise a BIG Challenge. Directors and staff, suppliers and clients will join together to raise funds for the Foundation and then travel to Africa to work on the projects.
80% of people agree that giving up some of the time to volunteer fosters skills that a degree or postgraduate qualification simply cannot.
Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.
