Harnessing the potential in The Gambia to foster development through sustainable business
Established in 1976, today Concern Universal are helping over 1.5 million people each year in 13 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In 2004 Haygrove joined forces with Concern Universal to establish the Gambia is Good project which aims to lift people out of poverty through giving them access to market for their fruit and vegetables.
The Shell Foundation was established by the Shell Group in 2000 as an independent, UK registered charity. The Charity was established with a $250m endowment from the Shell Group and acts as an investor in financial sustainable solutions that can be taken to scale to achieve a global impact. In 2007, Haygrove received a financial investment to develop our Bright Futures Programme in South Africa. The programme is dedicated to growing future farmers from previous disadvantaged backgrounds.
