The British Asian Trust

Charity description

The British Asian Trust logo
The British Asian Trust builds consortiums of like-minded supporters who set a philanthropic agenda through research, advocacy, and funding local NGOs with a proven track record of effective and scalable programmes.

Unlocking Potential; Changing Lives
The British Asian Trust unlocks the life potential of disadvantaged people in South Asia, by addressing the key challenges in access to education and livelihoods which enables people to transform their own lives—we offer a hand up, not a hand-out. We bring together visionary philanthropists who share a passion for catalysing change via grassroots solutions, as well as leveraging our convening power to spotlight more uncomfortable and taboo issues like mental health and human trafficking. To date, the Trust has touched the lives of over 3 million people in South Asia through supporting 45 grassroots initiatives. Together, we can help to unlock the potential of millions more.
