Improving healthcare in Africa

Preventing disease, improving diagnosis and treatment as well as delivering better local care are fundamental
to all development progress. Without health, few can achieve lasting improvements to their lives and a real chance
to earn a better future.

Supporting Communities

We encourage a culture whereby people are rewarded according to their commitment and ideas and oppose
all forms of discrimination based on sex, race, nationality, ethnicity, class, religion, age, physical ability, caste,
opinion or sexual orientation

WELCOME

The Chalker Foundation supports health and community programmes in Africa. We focus on the creation of strategic partnerships between businesses and charities. These partnerships are committed to using their combined skills, expertise and funds towards empowering African communities. We also fund training projects for health and community workers. Our aim is to encourage the creativity, passion and talent of local people to help them achieve their own development goals.

Our Mission is to achieve positive and sustainable health outcomes for all people in sub-Saharan Africa by working in partnership with organisations that invest in the training of health workers and developing local knowledge and skills in the community.
