Message from chair of trustees

I know that you do like to support the great work that CEDE Foundation is doing and I am confident that with your help we can eradicate extreme poverty which continues to be one of the main challenges of our time. We will continue to review all our strategies to ensure they help us deliver the objectives of the charity in the most economic, efficient and effective manner.

We are particularly grateful to everyone who has generously helped us and for the support of our corporate donors. We know that many business leaders are keen to play their part when it comes to community engagement, employee development and fundraising.
