The British Asian Trust


CEO Richard introduces you to The British Asian Trust

The British Asian Trust wants to see a South Asia that is free from poverty where everyone can meet their full potential. Their work unlocks the potential of disadvantaged people by maximising the impact and support of the South Asian diaspora. The British Asian Trust is a unique organisation, led by a powerful belief that traditional approaches to philanthropy and development will not, alone, solve the challenges of the region.

The British Asian Trust was founded in 2007 by His Majesty The King (when he was The Prince of Wales) and a group of visionary British Asian business leaders. The Trust works in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka where they aim to have the greatest possible impact through programmes tackling problems and inequalities in the areas of education, livelihoods, mental health, child protection and conservation.

Since being founded, their work has had a positive impact and helped changes the lives of more than 9 million people.
