Partnering and Supporting

Improving Healthcare in Africa

The Chalker Foundation for Africa engages with other commercial and non-profit organisations to achieve its objectives of transforming communities so that they lead healthy lives. As a small grant giving body we recognise that our grants can have a winder reach if supported by a more collaborative approach.

An example of where we have partnered to achieve this goal is the Ophthalmology Project:
