The Point Foundation supports and empowers vulnerable children and young people in Rwanda and South Africa. We sponsor students through their education and provide donations for equipment, nutrition and care of young people and people with disabilities.
The projects are based in communities where leaf tea and coffee cherries are grown and harvested and we are passionate about supporting the community and their industry.
We invest in communities
The Point Foundation supports and empowers vulnerable children and young people in Africa, working mainly in Rwanda and South Africa. The charity helps communities through the provision of much needed funds for the care, education and housing for young people, many of whom are orphans or have disabilities. We support the important work of The Point Foundation and provide donations for education, nutrition and care of young people and people with disabilities.
We are honoured to be sponsors of four students who we have supported through university: Modeste, Baptiste, Yvette and Frank. Education has been central to their development and building their careers and we are pleased we have been part of their journey.
Frank, a budding artist, lost both his parents in the 1994 Rwandan Genocide when he was only two years old. He was brought up at the Noel Orphanage along with hundreds of other children in similar circumstances. The Point Foundation have supported Frank and approached us about helping him with his fees for him to follow his dreams and study at university.
Frank was successful in securing a place on the only Creative Design course at KIST in Rwanda. We are very proud to be able to contribute to The Point Foundation and sponsor such a creative and enthusiastic young person through his education.
‘For the 70 plus students The Point Foundation have supported, sponsorship has been truly life changing. Thanks to Express Vending, four young people have been able to study, achieve and improve their life prospects. ‘ – Charles and Karen Trace, Founders
